To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the beaches which are designated under the EC directive of 1975 which were not monitored for salmonella and enteriditis in 1989.
§ Mr. Trippier
On 25 January I announced that a detailed summary of the results of the 1989 survey of United Kingdom bathing waters identified under the European Economic Community bathing water directive would be placed in the Library,Official Report, 25 January 1990, column 785. This includes numbers of samples taken for the salmonella and enterovirus parameters and the number of these which failed to meet the directive's mandatory standards, at each bathing water.

Sample sizes for Wales and Scotland are small and, in those two countries, changes in the percentages between the two years are not statistically significant.
Results are not yet available from more recent surveys and the Department does not make such forecasts.
