HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 cc384-5W
138. Mrs. Kellett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to publish the report of the Working Party on Refuse Disposal; and what administrative and legislative proposals he has in mind for dealing with the problem of plastic waste.

Mr. Graham Page

I expect the report to be published in the middle of April. Whilst on present information I have no reason to believe that plastic waste requires separate legislative or administrative treatment, this is no doubt a matter that will have to be considered in the light of the report.
