§ The Lord Kilmany
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they expect to receive the report, which is partially Government-funded, from the Warren Spring Laboratory with regard to acid rain; and whether they are satisfied that this matter is being investigated with the urgency which it deserves.
§ Lord Skelmersdale
The final report of the Acid Rain Review Group is now with the printers and is expected to be published early in the New Year. The Government are satisfied that the problems of acid deposition are being investigated with due urgency. This year the Government are sponsoring research in this field to the extent of about £1 million, and it is planned to extend this programme next year.
