To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many (a) complaints were made, (b) prosecutions were brought and (c) fines were levied against landfill site operators in each region for offences related to 16 July 2009 : Column 564W
(i) odour, (ii) water pollution, (iii) air pollution and (iv) effect on human health in each year since 1997. 
Following is a table from the Environment Agency (EA) showing the number of (a) complaints made, (b) court cases brought, and (c) fines levied against landfill operators in each region for offences related to (i) odour, (ii) water pollution and (iii) air pollution in each year since 2001. The data provided show that from 2001 only as this is when the EA's National Incident Recording System came on line. Interrogating systems which hold information prior to 2001 would incur disproportionate cost.
The EA does not hold specific data relating to the effect of such offences on human health, but it is taken into account when determining the nature of the incident.
