Government consults on national "sustainability" plan

An outline of the Government's proposals for honouring its commitments at last year's Earth Summit and setting the UK on the path of sustainable development is due to be published for public consultation in April. In March, a seminar organised by the Government offered some 100 representatives of environmental groups, business, local authorities and research bodies to air their views on what should be in the official sustainability plan.

The Government agreed to produce a report on sustainable development at the Earth Summit. The report will list the actions and policies it intends to adopt to meet the objectives of Agenda 21 and the conventions which it signed in Rio.

The report is to be completed by the end of the year. Progress against its objectives will be reported through the system of annual environmental reviews initiated by the 1990 White Paper on the environment
