§ Mr. Forth
[holding answer 11 June 1990]: A recent report for the Department of Trade and Industry, entitled "CFCs and Halons: Alternatives and the Scope for Recovery for Recycling and Destruction", found that there is scope for further development of CFC recycling activity in respect of refrigeration. The DTI and the Department of the Environment will be examining what more needs to be done to encourage such development. Strengthening of the controls on CFCs, where the Government are committed to complete phase-out of CFCs as soon as practically possible, and certainly by the year 2000, will itself contribute a strong incentive to increase the level of recycling undertaken.
