HC Deb 18 January 1988 vol 145 c228W
19. Mr. Illsley

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he has any proposals to extend the bottle bank scheme to increase the proportion of United Kingdom recycled glass.

Mr. Atkins

On 2 July 1986 a conference was held on glass recycling at which a commitment was made by the glass industry, packaging industry, supermarkets, local authorities and central Government to work towards doubling the number of bottle banks over a five-year period. Progress is being made towards meeting this target.
