HC Deb 19 June 2002 vol 387 c325W
10. Mr. Jack

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what facilities are in operation in Wales to recycle refrigerators in accordance with the EU Ozone Depleting Substances Regulations 2037/2000. [59916]

Mr. Touhig

I meet regularly with the First Minister to discuss a range of issues including recycling.

It is expected that two facilities for the recovery of ozone depleting substances from refrigerators and freezers will be operational in Wales by the end of the year.

Responsibility for disposal lies with the local authorities, with the policy responsibility resting with the National Assembly for Wales.
