Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to her answer of 20 June 2005, Official Report, column 674W, on the Water Resources Treatment and Action Programme, if she will place in the Library her Department's response to the European Commission investigation into UK compliance with the provisions under Article 3(1) and Annex 1A and Articles 5(2), 5(3), 10 and Annex 1B of Council Directive 91/271/EEC concerning urban waste water treatment. 
The information is being withheld as the Department considers its disclosure would have an adverse effect on international relations between the UK and the Commission and on the course of justice. This is because the information relates to open infraction proceedings and ongoing investigations. For the same reasons disclosure would not be in the public interest at this stage of the proceedings.
Mr. Morley: The Environment Agency is the statutory body with a duty to manage water resources in England and Wales. As part of the Agency's management role it has national and regional water resource strategies which set out the pressures over the next 25 years.
Water companies have duties to maintain adequate supplies of water. They have 25 year water resource plans which complement the Agency strategies and seek to reconcile supply with anticipated demand. These water resource plans are produced voluntarily at present but will become a statutory requirement under the provisions of the Water Act 2003.
18 Jul 2005 : Column 1289W
Each water company also has a drought plan which sets out how the company will continue to meet its duties to supply adequate quantities of wholesome water during drought periods with as little recourse as possible to drought orders and permits. These too are produced voluntarily at present but will become a statutory requirement as part of the implementation of the Water Act 2003 later this year.
Ms Buck: For details on the Department's advertising expenditure for the past three financial years, I refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for Sutton and Cheam (Mr. Burstow) today (UIN 9498).
Mr. Burstow: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much the (a) Department and (b) non-departmental bodies for which the Department is responsible has spent on advertising in the last three years, broken down by media type. 
Ms Buck: The requested figures are set out in the table. The majority of advertising investment by my Department is in support of the THINK! road safety campaign. Among non-departmental bodies for which the Department is responsible, major advertising investment has been by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, most recently to explain changes to the car tax rules. These changes have resulted in 700,000 fewer unlicensed vehicles on our roads and have recovered £77 million of tax revenue.
