To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he last met his European Community counterparts to discuss the issue of the development of a European environment agency; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Trippier
I discussed the European environment agency with EC Environment Ministers and their counterparts in eastern Europe in Dublin on 16 June 1990. The progress made in adopting the regulation on the agency was welcomed. The regulation takes actual effect when a decision on the siting of the agency is made.
