HC Deb 29 November 1988 vol 142 c205W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, what plans he has for authorising the ocean incineration of hazardous waste in the Irish sea.

Mr. Donald Thompson

None. The only approved marine incineration site is in the North sea. The Government committed themselves last year to phase out this method of disposal by the end of 1994 and have undertaken not to transfer waste for incineration in other sea areas in the meantime.
