HC Deb 03 March 1986 vol 93 c39W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make it his policy to impose on local authorities a duty to assist pharmacists with the disposal of arsenic and other noxious substances.

Mrs. Rumbold

My right hon. Friend at present sees no need for this. Waste disposal authorities can and do already advise individual waste producers on the most suitable method of disposal of their wastes.
