HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 c216W
Mr. Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many tonnes of(a) special waste, (b) toxic waste and (c) radioactive waste have been imported through Newhaven for each of the last three years.

Mr. Trippier

The Department's records do not differentiate between toxic waste and special waste which is also classified as toxic waste. In 1986–87 23 tonnes were imported through Newhaven, and in 1987–88 48 tonnes. We have no record of any imports in 1988–89. Radioactive waste is not imported into the country.
