§ The Duke of Montrose
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Why they failed to provide the Printed Paper Office with original copies of The State of the Countryside report 2002 in time for the Oral Question on the report on 13 June. [HL4758]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Lord Whitty)
The State of the Countryside report 2002 is a Countryside Agency publication. It was announced by way of a Press Release on 28 May and was freely available on the Countryside Agency's website from this date.
The final fully bound report is not due to be published until early July and a copy will be placed in the Printed Paper Office at that time.
