asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish a list of the abbreviations commonly used by his Department in parliamentary speeches, statements and answers to Questions with their respective meanings.

In general my colleagues and I try to minimise the use of abbreviations, except those that are very well known, or where the context makes their meaning clear. If the hon. Member has in mind any particular abbreviations which he has found confusing. I will gladly clarify them.
