§ Mr. John Wells
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue a circular to local authorities on the need to institute effective recycling schemes for waste paper, along the lines of the cardboard recycling project being undertaken by the Covent Garden Market Authority and the Thames Waste Paper Group.
§ Mr. Fox
The Government are pleased to note the arrangements made between the Covent Garden Market Authority and the Thames Waste Paper Group for the reclaiming of packaging materials from market refuse. Such arrangements are not uncommon, and the Government consider that no further advice is needed at the present time.
