Tim Yeo, Minister of State for the Environment and Countryside, today announced the results of bathing water quality monitoring in 1993. The results show that, despite a very wet spring and late summer, last year's improvement in standards has been consolidated with 80% of bathing waters meeting the EC standard.

In a written reply to a Parliamentary Question from David Lidington MP (Aylesbury) Mr Yeo said: 'The monitoring carried out during the 1993 season shows that 80% of the 457 identified bathing waters in the United Kingdom met the mandatory coliform bacteria standards of the EC Bathing Water Directive. This compares with 79 per cent in 1992 and 76% in 1991.
