asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has received from the right hon. and learned Member for Huntingdonshire a copy of the "Hunts Post" of 2nd January 1975 containing a directory for recycling of household waste, prepared by the Huntingdonshire Branch of the Conservation Society; and whether he will use this directory as a precedent for giving guidance on a national scale.

Yes. I very much welcome the publicity the directory gives to national and local outlets for reclaimable waste, and shall be bringing it to the notice of the Waste Management Advisory Council. Among other things, the council is charged with the task of devising publicity for, and in step with, the increased opportunities for reclamation which we hope to bring about.
