Environmental Directives

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 24 July 2006, Official Report, column 713W, on environmental directives, which environmental directives were agreed and published between May 1997 and the formation of his Department; what the transposition date is of each; whether they have been transposed; and which Government Department is responsible for monitoring UK compliance. (90207)

Defra does not hold central records of environmental directives agreed and published between May 1997 and the formation of the Department in June 2001. The information requested could only be assembled at disproportionate cost.

However, details of all directives in force can be found on the Eur-Lex database available on the European Union's website at: http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex.
