§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made towards the full implementation of the European Economic Community directive on the quality of bathing water along the coastline of Cumbria.
§ Mr. Moynihan
[holding answer 5 December 1988]: There are 16 identified bathing waters in Cumbria, many of which already meet the directive's standards. The North West water authority plans to bring the remaining waters up to the EEC standard by 1995. Work on this task is in hand.
