HC Deb 08 July 1991 vol 194 c284W
Mr. William Ross

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for which plants he intends to have an independent environmental audit carried out in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Needham

Environmental audits are to allow a company to examine its performance in terms of emissions to atmosphere, discharges to sewer and in the production and disposal of waste. There are no proposals for the Government to require independent audits of this nature.
