HC Deb 12 November 1984 vol 67 c134W
Mr. Freeman

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps the Government propose to take to amend the present model byelaws governing straw and stubble burning so as to include oil seed rape.

Mr. Jopling

My right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary and I propose shortly to consult the local authority associations and other interested organisations on a separate scheme of model byelaws to regulate the burning of residues of oil seed rape and certain other crops. It is our intention that these byelaws should be available to local authorities in time for next year's burning season.
