§ Mr. Trippier
The Montreal protocol requires consumption of chlorofluorocarbons to he cut to 50 per cent. of 1986 levels by 1999. We expect this to be achieved in the United Kingdom by the end of this year—10 years ahead of the protocol timetable. The United Kingdom is pressing for a strengthening of the protocol to cut CFC consumption and production elsewhere by 50 per cent. in 1991–92, by 85 per cent. in 1995–96 with a phaseout in 2000.
