HC Deb 04 November 1993 vol 231 c352W
Sir Cranley Onslow

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received from the British Aerosol Manufacturers Association about the terms of the draft Environmental Protection (Non-Refillable Refrigerant Containers) Regulations 1993.

Mr. McLoughlin

[holding answer 3 November 1993]: My Department has received representations from BAMA expressing concern that aerosol sprays for freezing purposes would be banned under the terms of these Regulations. I understand from my colleagues at the Department of the Environment that the regulation was not designed to include aerosols and the definitions have been revised to ensure that the regulation affects only refrigerants in disposable containers which are supplied for servicing refrigeration equipment.
