HC Deb 26 January 1989 vol 145 cc729-30W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment which university research departments will be invited to the forthcoming United Kingdom sponsored conference in ozone layer depletion and CFC dangers.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

Participation in the "Saving the Ozone Layer" London conference is for Governments only, and we have invited over 150 countries to send a Ministerial delegation. A small number of leading scientists and industrialists from all over the world will speak on specialist subjects. The scientists will also be involved in informal panel sessions and an exhibition, where they will be supported by the stratospheric ozone review group, including the chairman, Dr. Pyle, of Cambridge university.
