HC Deb 05 June 1992 vol 208 cc666-7W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is Her Majesty's Government's strategy to reduce concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Mr. Maclean

The United Kingdom supports the ultimate objective of the framework convention on climate change which is to achieve stabilisation of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The commitments in the convention on limiting greenhouse gas emissions would be an important first step towards this objective.
