§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for The Environment what was the original publication date of the annual environmental review; when he now expects the review report to be published; and what is the reason for the delay.
§ Mr. Yeo
We will publish the third year report in the series of White Papers on the Environment in the new year. This will allow us to take account both of the outcome of the annual public expenditure survey and production of the United Kingdom strategy for sustainable development. We had no other date in mind and there has been no delay.
