§ 30. Mr. Kirkwood
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now publish the Nature Conservancy Council's report on the effects of acid rain.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
I understand that the NCC report is the result of a review of published scientific material which was carried out with the aim of assessing the impact of acid deposition on nature conservation interests. Publication of the report is a matter for the council but I am informed that it expects to publish it in the spring of next year.
