HC Deb 01 July 1996 vol 280 cc305-6W
Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the green issues mentioned in the list of ministerial responsibilities for his Department; and if he will make a statement. [34343]

Mr. Howard

Green issues in the Home Office are the responsibility of my right hon. and noble Friend Baroness Blatch. They consist of the green housekeeping strategy, which sets out the Department's policy on conserving natural resources and reducing environmental pollution. The strategy is supported by action plans incorporating recycling and energy efficiency schemes and a range of other green housekeeping initiatives.
