HC Deb 24 July 1984 vol 64 c621W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the Government's attitude to the forthcoming conference on pollution of the North sea.

Mr. Waldegrave

The Government attach great importance to preserving the health of the North sea, and hope that the ministerial conference to be held in Bremen at the end of October at the invitation of the Federal German Government will provide a valuable impetus to international collaboration to this end. We are taking an active part in the preparatory discussions at official level and I hope to attend the conference itself.
