HC Deb 21 June 1973 vol 858 c190W
Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make it clear to local authorities that capital expenditure on necessary plans for collecting and preparing waste paper for recycling will be treated by the Government as "key" expenditure for the purspose of borrowing the money required.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

No. The decision to incur such expenditure is one for each local authority to take under the arrangements for locally determined schemes.
