Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Labour – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 8th August 1966.

Alert me about debates like this

Mrs. Butler:

asked the Minister of Labour what progress has been made with the proposed Carcinogenic Substances (Prohibition) Regulations and the Carcinogenic Substances (Prohibition of Importation) Order.

I expect to publish a statutory draft of the Carcinogenic Substances Regulations within the next few weeks.

Mrs. Butler:

Can my right hon. Friend say whether the Regulations will include provisions for the transport and disposal of waste substances which may be carcinogenic, as this is causing considerable concern to many members of the public in the areas where these products are disposed of?

I am afraid that I could not answer that question offhand, but I will certainly let my hon. Friend have the answer.
