To ask the Secretary of State for the Enviroment if he will list (a) the amount in tonnes of toxic waste imported through and offloaded at the port of Seaham over the last five years, (b) the composition of the toxic waste, (c) the point of origin of the toxic waste, (d) the dates of offloading of the toxic waste, (e) the point of disposal of the said toxic waste and (f) the method of transport.

My Department does not normally keep records of waste movements. However, I am advised by Durham WDA that no waste covered by the special waste regulation has been imported through Seaham in the last five years.
