§ Mr. Gareth Wardell
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment by what date he expects to revoke the Control of Pollution Act (Exemption of Certain Discharges from Control) Order 1983.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Government proposals for a phased withdrawal of the exemptions conferred by the Control of Pollution (Exemption of Certain Discharges from Control) Order 1983 were published in a consultation letter issued on 20 September 1984. Decisions on implementing the revocation of the order will be made when the responses to the consultation letter have been fully considered.
