HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 c28W
Mr. Simon Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the new research projects on the environmental effects of acid rain which his Department will fund during 1984–85, indicating where each project will be carried out.

Mr. Waldegrave

New research projects in 1984–85 will examine the environmental effects of acid precipitation on rocks and soils, lakes and streams, crops and forests. The detailed specification of project and selection of contractors are currently in progress, and the precise information asked for is therefore not yet available.
