HC Deb 27 June 1995 vol 262 c597W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when the Government will issue its response to the first report of 1994–1995 from the Environment Committee on volatile organic compounds, House of Commons paper No. 39. [31494]

Mr. Atkins

I have now sent a memorandum to the Select Committee setting out the Government's response to their report on volatile organic compounds.

The Government have welcomed the Committee's report as a thorough and thoughtful analysis of a complex subject. The report makes a valuable contribution to the development of policy and to influencing the further development of the strategy which the Government have in place for tackling the adverse health and economic effects of these substances.
