§ Ms. Walley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he proposes to take to ensure the beach at Waveney, East Anglia, meets European Community standards.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
I am pleased to report that in 1989 both the identified bathing waters in Waveney met the standards for coliforms set in the bathing water directive and one, Lowestoft South, was awarded a blue flag. In addition, Southwold beach was also awarded a blue flag, although this bathing water is not at present identified under the directive.
