HC Deb 09 November 1979 vol 973 c371W
Mr. Oakes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list in the Official Report all registered sites for the disposal of dangerous toxic waste in Merseyside county and the north Cheshire area and the dates of the latest visits by his inspectors.

Mr. Fox

I do not have this information. Under the Control of Pollution Act 1974 responsibility for the licensing and supervision of waste disposal rests with the waste disposal authorities—the county councils in England.
