HC Deb 31 March 1980 vol 982 cc74-5W
Mr. George Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much his Department has spent in the last 12 months on publicity for the anti-litter campaign in (a) the national press, (b) the provincial press, (c) television, (d) radio and (e) elsewhere.

Mr. Fox

The Government gave a grant of £275,000 in 1979–80 to the Keep Britain Tidy Group, which campaigns vigorously against litter on many fronts in collaboration with local authorities, voluntary groups and industry. Advertising plays an important though not exclusive role in this campaign.
