Environment secretary John Gummer has announced the progress the government is making towards setting up the proposed Environment Agency.

Mr Gummer said: 'I propose to establish a new advisory committee on arrangements for the proposed agency in England and Wales and to appoint to it persons who I hope will play a continuing role in overseeing the new body if Parliament approves the necessary legislation.

'I am planning on the basis that it will prove possible to establish the new agency during 1995 and incorporate the existing bodies into it at the beginning of the 1996/97 financial year'. The minister has published a report on a study conducted by Touche Ross which considers potential models for the geographic and management structure of the Environment Agency and provides an initial assessment of their strengths and weaknesses.
