Waste Management: Newport

Volume 691: debated on Tuesday 1 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

On what date production of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) ceased at the Monsanto site in Newport, Wales; and on what date and from which sites all production of PCBs by any manufacturer ceased in the United Kingdom. [HL3220]

I understand that the production of PCBs ceased in 1977 at the Monsanto, Newport site, and that all UK production ceased in that same year.

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Where and how all hazardous wastes from the Monsanto site in Newport, Wales, were disposed of following the closure of the Maendy and Brofiscin quarries in 1972. [HL3222]
