§ Mrs. Helen Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what plans she has to investigate the response by the Environment Agency to the recent major pollution incident on the River Nene between Peterborough and Northampton. 
§ Mr. Morley
Defra officials have checked the response by the Environment Agency to this pollution incident. They are satisfied with the extent and the manner in which the Environment Agency has carried out, and continues to carry out, its investigations into the cause and effect of the incident. I will be writing to my hon. Friend about this in more detail in reply to her letter of 15 July.
