HC Deb 21 May 1965 vol 712 c298W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he expects to receive the report from the Working Party on Refuse Collection; and whether, bearing in mind the facts that local authorities were asked in 1960 to organise the collection of unwanted articles and that the public nuisance of dumping is increasing month by month, he will make a further approach forthwith to local authorities on this matter.

Mr. MacColl

My right hon. Friend expects to receive the report in a few months' time. The report will deal with, among other things, the collection of unwanted articles, and he therefore thinks it preferable to await the report before making a further approach to local authorities.
