§ Mr. Martyn Jones
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment his Department has made of the presence of(a) hazardous materials and (b) ozone-depleting substances within those buildings which his Department occupies; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. John M. Taylor
My Department is committed to complying with the requirements of all health and safety legislation relating to the identification and control of hazardous materials in the workplace, and replacing ozone depleting substances with environmentally friendly alternatives. My Department occupies some 220 sites: assessments of the amount of hazardous materials and ozone-depleting substances are held locally. These assessments have not been collated centrally.
