To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he hopes to see the practice of integrated pollution control, which is being pioneered in Britain, spread throughout Europe.

I do indeed. Although the EC recognised the benefits of an integrated system of pollution control in the fourth action programme, Britain has gone further than any country in Europe to put such a system into practice on a national basis. Given the scope for pollution reduction offered by an integrated system of control, I hope that other member states and European Governments will follow our lead.
