§ Mr. Chaytor
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what assessment he has made of the Government's fulfilment of their obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Angela Eagle
The Government's actions under the Convention on Biological Diversity are set out in the United Kingdom's First National Report to the Convention on Biological Diversity dated 31 December 1997, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House. We also look forward to continuing the further implementation of the Convention at the next Conference of the Parties which is to be held from 4 to 15 May 1998 in Bratislava.
