HC Deb 08 December 1971 vol 827 cc308-9W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will study the recent legislation placed before the Jersey Parliament, details of which have been supplied to him, to ban non-returnable glass bottles, with a view to introducing similar legislation.

Mr. Peter Walker

I shall, of course, consider this information. But decisions on the need for legislative or other action on non-returnable containers must await the outcome of the studies to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member for Wood Green (Mrs. Joyce Butler) on 16th November.—[Vol. 826, c.117–8.]
