HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c101W
52. Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to prevent the use of good land for providing in-fill material for civil engineering projects, and to ensure that both contractors and local authorities make use of waste material for these purposes.

Mr. Graham Page

The opening up of new borrow pits is already subject to control under the Town and Country Planning Acts. An official working party considering the use of waste material as road fill will report shortly.
