§ Angela Eagle
I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Environment to the hon. Member for Liverpool, Riverside, (Ms Ellman) on 22 December 1997,Official Report, column 439. The legislation referred to in that answer provides a definition of contaminated land. The legislation will also place a duty on enforcing authorities to maintain registers of land which meet that definition. These registers will also contain prescribed particulars of enforcement action taken and of remediation works carried out.
