HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 cc294-5W
Mr. Maples

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has received the 11th report of the Royal Commission on environmental pollution; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

I have today received this report and will be giving it detailed consideration. I intend to make a statement very soon about the Government's proposals for strengthening waste disposal legislation and I am pleased to have the opportunity to consider the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution's views before so doing. A full response to the wider issues addressed in the report will follow as soon as possible.
