To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what European Community funds have so far been directed to the establishment of the CORINE programme; and what is the predicted annual funding of the programme in 1990–91 and 1991–92.

Up to 1989, 4 million ecu (£2·8 million) have been directed to the CORINE programme. For 1989, expenditure is estimated at 3 million ecu (£2·1 million) and for 1990 expenditure earmarked at 4·5 million ecu (£3·1 million). After 1990, it is envisaged that CORINE-related work will pass to the proposed European Environment Agency.
