HC Deb 22 June 1993 vol 227 c120W
Mr. Thomason

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to respond to the Royal Commission on environmental pollution report on waste incineration; and if he will indicate the nature of his proposed response.

Mr. Yeo

The Government have welcomed the report from the Royal Commission on environment pollution on the incineration of waste as a comprehensive and clear analysis of the role of incineration as a waste management option. It describes incineration in a positive and reassuring light and is likely to go a long way to offsetting public concerns about incineration. The Government will be making a full response to the commission's report in due course.
