§ Mr. Darling
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what progress has been made in the preparation of an increased research programme for the recovery and recycling of waste materials, on the lines of his statement to The Times Conference on Conservation in July.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
Projects are being actively pursued by the Warren Spring Laboratory of my Department in conjunction with Government Departments and with industry. I shall be looking to the appropriate requirements board for further advice on the scale of research in this field.
