§ Mrs. Winifred Ewing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what study he has made of the preliminary report of the United States of America Department of Commerce and the United Slates Environmental Protection Agency on the "Amoco Cadiz" oil spill; and what conclusion he has reached thereon.
§ Mr. Denis Howell:
This report, which is of interest to a number of Government Departments, is being studied along with others produced in the wake of the "Amoco Cadiz" disaster and other recent oil spill incidents. The lessons to be learnt will be taken into account in developing future policy for dealing with oil spills.
