HC Deb 28 April 1980 vol 983 cc395-6W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider adding the controlling of farm wastes and wastes in general generated by the agriculture industry to the controls that already exist in industry and commerce under the Control of Pollution Act 1974.

Mr. Fox

[pursuant to his reply, 3 April 1980, c. 308]: The controlling of farm wastes was one of the matters considered by the Royal Commission on environmental pollution in its recent report " Agriculture and Pollution ". The Government are considering all of the commission's recommendations and will respond to the report as soon as possible.

I shall write to the hon. Member.
