§ 7 and 8. Mr. Gower
asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) whether he has noted the inadequate provision of bins or larger receptacles for litter disposal in many urban and rural areas in parts of Wales; and if he will seek powers to remedy these deficiencies;
(2) how many Welsh local authorities, who institute proceedings under the Litter Acts, have provided adequate numbers of bins or larger receptacles for litter disposal throughout their areas.
§ Mr. Gibson-Watt
I have received no recent representations about inadequate provision of litter bins. Local authorities and highway authorities are responsible for such provision and must judge whether it is adequate to meet local needs. I have advised local authorities of the need to make adequate provision, and I trust that they will give full consideration to this need.
