§ 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.
