Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will request from the Swiss Government, their consent to place in the Library their environmental impact assessment into the Ilisu Dam project. [92757]

Mr. Wilson

The Environmental Impact Appraisal Report (EIAR) is being prepared for the company bidding for this project; supplemental reports are being prepared for the Swiss authorities. We have already asked the company and the Swiss authorities whether they are prepared to allow ECGD to release these documents. They have advised that they are not prepared to agree release at the present time. We understand that they intend to release the reports when they have been finalised.
