HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c140W
Mr. Paice

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment she has made of the calculation and forecasts for CO2 emissions contained in European Union document 8468/97 from the Secretary-General. [8160]

Mr. Battle

[holding answer 14 July 1997]: I submitted an Explanatory Memorandum to Parliament on 9 July 1997 on the European Union document 8468/97, a copy of which is in the Library of both Houses. My officials have discussed the scenario for future carbon emissions with the European Commission and believe it fairly describes likely broad trends at European Union level.
