asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what assistance he gives to re-refiners of used lubricating oil in its collection to ensure that all used oil is being re-refined.

Advice is given by the Board of Trade salvage and recovery officers when they visit industrial premises. Where necessary they place the industrialist in touch with the re-refiners. Not all used lubricating oil is, however, capable of being re-refined, and collection from outlying places is often uneconomical.

Will the Minister, in conjunction with the Board of Trade, ensure that the maximum possible use is made of this oil so as to reduce further dollar imports?
