Vol. 461 No. 5

Written Answers. - Waste Management.

Trevor Sargent


103 Mr. Sargent asked the Minister for the Environment whether he intends to reconcile the Waste Management Bill incineration option with the Dumping at Sea Bill which prohibits maritime incineration. [3370/96]

Section 3 of the Waste Management Bill, 1995 provides that the Bill shall not apply to dumping of waste at sea; this includes marine incineration of waste. There is consequently no inconsistency between the Waste Management Bill, 1995 and the Dumping at Sea Bill, 1995
