HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 c298W
Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has yet received from the London Borough of Harrow Authority details of the available rubbish dumps and tipping sites within the borough.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Copies of the appropriate questionnaire for the review of waste disposal facilities were sent on 12th April, 1972, to those authorities responsible for refuse disposal. They have been asked to collect and record certain details and to pass the questionnaires to the Institute of Geological Sciences and the appropriate river authority for further information to be recorded before final copies are available. The aim is to complete this in respect of every site not later than 31st March, 1973.

With regard to the Greater London area, the GLC is responsible for completing the questionnaires and will be liaising with the London boroughs as necessary and particularly with regard to the existence of privately-owned waste disposal facilities.
