HC Deb 29 November 1972 vol 847 c138W
49. Mr. Cormack

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is yet in a position to announce proposals to restrict the use of non-perishable materials in the manufacture of containers for household goods.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

No such proposals are in mind at present. My right hon. and learned Friend will, in any event, need to consider the views of various representative working parties before deciding what action may need to be taken in respect of the disposal of plastics, glass and metal containers, all of which have non-perishable characteristics.
