asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food, in connection with the public warning regarding the collection and return of milk bottles, whether he is aware that in many districts there are a quantity of derelict milk bottles, especially on empty premises; and on whom rests the responsibility for collecting such bottles?

The Milk (Use of Bottles) Order, 1943, which came into force on 1st March makes it clear that the responsibility for making bottles available for collection rests upon the user and the responsibility for collection upon the dairymen. I shall be glad if my hon. Friend will give me particulars of the locations of the bottles to which he refers in his Question.
