§ Mrs. Ann Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the organisations that have been sent a copy of the schedules of prescribed processes and substances under clause 2 of the Environmental Protection Bill.
§ Mr. Trippier
[holding answer 5 February 1990]The current schedules of processes and substances are working drafts which have been made available to Standing Committee H to inform discussion of part I of the Environmental Protection Bill. They are not the subject of a public consultation exercise, because they do not yet incorporate our proposals for processes to be prescribed on account of special waste arisings, or for waste substances. The drafts will be finalised as soon as possible, and incorporated in a draft of the regulations provided for under clause 2 of the Bill. This will be published for comment as soon as it has been prepared.
