Mr. Macdonald

Officials in the Scottish Office regularly receive information from SEPA concerning current and future levels of funding, and my noble Friend Lord Sewel has recently met SEPA's Chairman and Chief Executive to discuss the outcome of the Comprehensive Spending Review. The detailed allocation of resources to SEPA and the other parts of the Other Environmental Services programme is currently being finalised and will be announced in due course.
