§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what study he has set under way of the recovery and re-use of industrially damaged chemicals in view of the economic advantage of such processes;
(2) what study he has set under way of the recovery and re-use of solvents in view of the economic advantage of such processes.
§ Mr. Chataway
I have been asked to reply.
The answer is none. I believe that processes for the recovery of chemicals and solvents are well enough known; that facilities already exist in industry for this recovery; and that where the economic advantages are clear, market forces will ensure that these facilities are used.
