HC Deb 11 May 1992 vol 207 c38W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what volumes of toxic waste have been imported into Wales each year since 1979; and what has been done with those wastes.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Information on the importation of hazardous waste into the United Kingdom is available only for the period since the introduction of the Transfrontier Shipment of Hazardous Waste Regulations in October 1988.

The information is given in the table:

advisory functions (as the Forestry Authority) and its forest management role (as Forest Enterprise). This has strengthened the commission's ability to lead the way in implementing forestry policy in Wales and improved its efficiency and effectiveness in managing its forest estate.
