HC Deb 28 June 1978 vol 952 cc573-4W
59. Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to encourage the recycling of materials and spare parts for the car trade.

Mr. Marks

Ferrous scrap from old vehicles is already widely used as a raw material for the steel and foundry industry; and assemblies and components are reconditioned and exchanged whenever this is commercially viable.
