HC Deb 05 July 2000 vol 353 c185W
Mr. Alan Keen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he proposes to issue guidance on the forthcoming Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations. [129582]

Mr. Hill

Advance copies of "Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control: A Practical Guide" have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. The guidance describes the main provisions of the new Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control regime to be set up under the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations, a draft of which was laid before Parliament on 15 June. The guidance will set out how the Secretary of State expects to see the regulatory regime applied, and how certain terms are to be interpreted. It will complement the Environment Agency's package of technical guidance.

The guidance will be made more widely available once the regulations have been made.
