HC Deb 24 June 2003 vol 407 cc673-4W
Gregory Barker

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what representations she has received regarding(a) environmental targets not yet met and (b) the attainment of those targets. [120897]

Mr. Morley

The Department receives a great many representations on these and other aspects of environmental policy, for example, the Efra Select Committee hearing on 18 June 2003 looked at the Department's performance against its Public Service Agreement targets as reported in the Departmental Report.

The Department has published its environmental Public Service Agreement targets (along with all other Public Service Agreement targets) in the Departmental Report—(ref Cm 5919), which can be found at: www.defra.gov.uk/corporate/deprep/default.htm

The Report outlines our progress to date in meeting these targets and sets out a wide range of actions necessary to meet them.
