Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the Government intends to make an intervention to the European Court of Justice in the case of the European Commission and Poland, on the construction of those parts of the Augustow and Wasilkow road bypasses that will pass through the Rospuda Valley and Knyszyn Primeval Forest; and if she will make a statement.

In April, the European Court of Justice ordered interim measures halting construction work, and a date to be fixed for a hearing to clarify factual matters. If the case goes to a full hearing, once details are published in the Commission's Official Journal, we will consider whether to intervene.
