To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many rural district councils currently collect domestic refuse from the doorstep; and how many have transferred to the wheelie bin system. 
§ Mr. Clappison
Mr. Department does not hold the information requested, but I refer the right hon.

Gentleman requests.
