HC Deb 18 October 1972 vol 843 c92W
Mr. Parkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what use is made in this country of recycling techniques; and what percentage of steel made in Great Britain comes from scrap.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Recycling techniques are in widespread and growing use although the extent varies with particular industries. About one-half of the steel made here comes from scrap.
