Lord Brockway

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What were the practical conclusions of the United Nations Environment Programme Conference, attended by more than 100 Governments, ending at Nairobi on 18th May 1982; and what contribution the British delegation made.

The Earl of Avon

The Session of Special Character of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme on 10th to 18th May was held in commemoration of the Stockholm Conference. The session reviewed progress on tackling the problems of the environment over the past 10 years and considered likely environmental trends and the priority courses of action for the next 10 years. The United Kingdom delegation was led by the Right Honourable Tom King, MP, Minister for Local Government and Environmental Services. I will send a copy of Mr. King's speech to the noble Lord.
