To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his answer of 21 July, Official Report, columns 266–67, on EC bathing waters, what information he has as to the steps the Commission is taking to increase compliance with standards in those countries with more than 100 beaches which failed the mandatory standards.
