HC Deb 01 July 1969 vol 786 cc60-1W
Mrs. Knight

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, in view of the increasing nuisance and danger of litter, if he will consider what further steps should be taken to deal with this problem.

Mr. Skeffington

I think that the most profitable action is education and persuasion of the public, and to this end the Government give financial and other support to the Keep Britain Tidy Group. Provisions in the Civic Amenities Act, 1967 relating to abandoned vehicles and other dumped rubbish will, I believe, in time also make a significant contribution to reducing the problem. I should be happy to consider any suggestions the hon. Lady has to make.
