HC Deb 15 October 1991 vol 196 cc133-4W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Prime Minister when the intra-departmental guide for civil servants on green decision-making was completed and distributed to each Government Department; and what has been the cost to date of producing this guide.

Mr. MacGregor

I have been asked to reply.

The guide, "Policy Appraisal and the Environment" was published by HMSO on 23 September 1991. The Department of the Environment distributed copies to other Departments during the following week, and copies are available at HMSO bookshops. The guide cost approximately £76,000 to produce.
