To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has now received the 1987 annual report of the Radioactive Waste Management Advisory Committee.

Mr. Ridley

Yes. The eighth annual report was published on 1 September and copies were placed in the Library of the House. My right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales and I continue to value greatly the advice of the committee for which we also recently announced the appointment of a new chairman, Professor John Knill, to take over from the late Professor Paul Matthews with effect from 1 September.
