HC Deb 21 December 1982 vol 34 c518W
Mr. Donald Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the final report of the United Kingdom review group on acid rain will be published.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Since my reply to the hon. Member for Whitehaven (Dr. Cunningham) on 17 June—[Vol. 25, c.342.]—has decided to extend the scope of its study to provide for more detailed investigation of the significance and environmental affects of acidity. As a consequence, the group's report is not now expected until towards the end of 1983.
