HC Deb 25 January 1990 vol 165 c800W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what consultation his Department has had with the Norwegian Government about the dumping of toxic industrial waste in the North sea.

Mr. Waldegrave

None. The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is in touch with the Norwegian and other interested Governments through the Oslo commission. The waste which the United Kingdom permits to be dumped in the North sea is not toxic.
