HC Deb 23 June 1971 vol 819 cc287-8W
Mr. Adam Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment which authority, after the reorganisation of local government, will be responsible for dealing with accumulations of rubbish and the general clearing up of open land responsibilities which are presently shared, respectively, between the local authority and the planning authority.

Mr. Graham Page

This will be discussed in the consultations I am having with the local authority associations about the distribution of functions.
