Mr. Robert Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the dates of each seizure and checking of waste consignments to Drigg made by Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution during the year 1990; which of these consignments breached the Drigg authorisation; and if he will give the nature of the breach.
§ Mr. Atkins
One seizure was made at the Drigg site on 31 August 1990. The consignment was found to include one aerosol can with free liquid, and a dry cell battery. This constituted a very minor breach of the Drigg disposal authorisation.
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if the waste consignment for Drigg seized by Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution in December 1994 conformed to all the conditions within the Drigg authorisation; and when Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution report was completed and delivered to his Department.
