HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 cc764-5W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to place a ban on the manufacture and import of foams made with chlorofluorocarbons.

Mr. Maclean

The Government's policy on CFCs, which follows the approach in the Montreal Protocol and the relevant EC legislation, is to eliminate them by controlling their production and supply rather than their use. We therefore have no plans to ban products containing CFCs.
