HC Deb 24 January 1990 vol 165 c759W
106. Mr. Hayward

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what further measures Her Majesty's Government are taking to promote international action to tackle the greenhouse effect.

Mr. Trippier

We actively support the work of the intergovernmental panel on climate change and our contribution to its scientific assessment will be enhanced by the establishment of the new climate change prediction centre. We are leading efforts to gain support for an international framework convention on climate change and hosting the second conference of the parties to the Montreal protocol at which we will press for the strengthening of the protocol to phase out the use and production of CFCs which are important greenhouse gases.
