HC Deb 30 June 1988 vol 136 cc304-5W
Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what action he is considering in the light of those aspects of the report prepared by Her Majesty's pollution inspectorate on waste tip and gas explosion dangers, which have implications for his responsibilities in Wales; whether a similar survey has been conducted in Wales; and if he will make a statement on the scale of the dangers in Wales and the remedial measures he proposed to take.

Mr. Grist

[holding answer 29 June 1988]: Wales was included in the survey. The responses from local authorities are receiving consideration and Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Pollution will report to me shortly. The inspectorate has issued interim advice which will be followed by detailed guidance on the measures site licences should require for the proper management of landfill gas.
