HC Deb 11 January 2000 vol 342 cc111-2W
18. Mr. Baker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on the Government's policy on waste disposal, with particular reference to East Sussex. [103269]

Mr. Mullin

The Government's policy for sustainable waste management, including waste disposal, is set out in the draft national waste strategy, "A Way With Waste". The final version will be published shortly and we expect local authorities throughout England to have regard to its goals in developing strategies for managing waste in their areas. I understand plans are being developed in East Sussex to meet the goals set out in "A Way With Waste", and I welcome this.
