§ Lord Gainford
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether a further change is to be made to the scheme of fees and charges for integrated pollution control operated by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Pollution.
§ The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Viscount Ullswater)
A minor change to the HMIP Integrated Pollution Control Fees and Charges Scheme 1994–95 is to take effect retrospectively from 1st June 1994. It introduces a provisional application fee of £0.00 for a number of processes included under IPC by the Environmental Protection (Prescribed Processes and Substances) Regulations, pending further consultation on possible amendment to those regulations.
Copies of the amendment to the scheme are being placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
