HC Deb 10 December 1998 vol 322 c246W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Minister of State, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will establish designated courts to deal with environmental issues. [62537]

Mr. Hoon

There are no plans to establish separate environmental courts. However, cases involving environmental issues will benefit, along with all other cases, from the regime of judicial case management to be introduced in April.
