HC Deb 05 December 1996 vol 286 c735W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will place in the Library copies of all reports prepared by Government laboratories or consultants to his Department on the monitoring of pollution arising from offshore oil installations since 1979. [7021]

Mr. Clappison

The directorate of fisheries research of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food regularly produces reports in the aquatic environment monitoring reports series on this subject, which are placed in the Library. Similar reports are produced by the Scottish Office. My Department has commissioned no recent reports from consultants for this purpose.
