HC Deb 12 February 1990 vol 167 c60W
Mr. Madden

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to bring the first section of the Control of Pollution Act into force; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

It is no longer appropriate to seek to bring section 1 of the 1974 Act into force in view of the proposed replacement of part I of that Act by the provisions in part II of the Environmental Protection Bill.
