§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to establish a free and effective toxic waste collection service.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
It is the responsibility of the producers of toxic waste to pay for its safe collection and disposal. I see no need to alter this arrangement. Controls over collection and disposal of toxic wastes are embodied in HSE statutes and particularly in the Control of Pollution Act 1974.
