To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the leaking of toxic and infected material from the refuse tip at Attlebridge in Norfolk. [27411]

Mr. Clappison

[holding answer 2 May 1996]: Responsibility for ensuring that the site at Attlebridge in Norfolk does not harm human health nor cause pollution of the environment now rests with the Environment Agency. The site is subject to a recent planning application and in view of the appellate role of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, I cannot comment on the merits of the application.
