To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has any plans to introduce a scheme of official labelling for environmentally friendly products.
Yes. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment announced on 9 January at columns 589–91 the basis on which the Government intend to establish a scheme of eco-labelling, and indicated that an advisory group would be set up to help develop a suitable scheme. We expect to announce the membership of the group very shortly.
