Light Pollution

Volume 689: debated on Wednesday 21 February 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Baroness Andrews on 16 January (WA 141–2), by which month in summer 2007 they intend to consult on draft guidance concerning light pollution; and whether they will specify which recommendations in the Barker review they will be taking into account in the preparation of the draft guidance. [HL1660]

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is fully committed to producing guidance on light pollution and will do so as soon as possible in conjunction with Communities and Local Government.

In developing this guidance, the Government will take into account recommendation 14 in the Barker review that there should be a substantial streamlining of national policy.
