National Parks and Broads Authority: Elections

Norman Lamb: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs when he plans to make his response to the outcomes of the consultation on direct elections for the National Parks and Broads Authority. [270359]

Huw Irranca-Davies: I will give my formal response before the summer recess. I anticipate that my response will focus on alternative ways for ensuring that all the national park and broads authorities are as responsive as the best of these authorities, rather than on legislating for direct elections.

Power Stations: EU Law

Greg Clark: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Tunbridge Wells of 2 March 2009, Official Report, column 1330W, on power stations: EC law, what recent discussions the Environment Agency has had with plant operators on the application of derogations from the EU large combustion plant directive.

All previously granted derogations have now ceased.
