HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 cc292-3W
79. Mr. Cormack

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will take steps to restrict the use of non-perishable materials in the manufacture of containers for household goods.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

The disposal problems of plastic, glass and metal containers are being intensively studied by representative working parties with which my Department is associated. My right hon. Friend will need to consider their findings before deciding what action may need to be taken.
