Supplementary Memorandum submitted by
Dixons Group plc
I enclose the letters as requested:
9 August 2001 from Anna Stacey, DTI,
confirming that Article 16(2) of EC Regulation 2037/2000 did apply
to CFC foam in domestic fridges.
Correspondence between Bill Moyes
of the BRC and Lord Haskins including the copy of Lord Haskins'
letter to Mrs Beckett.
I also enclose a copy of a letter from Robert
Mason of the DETR Global Atmosphere Division dated 5 January 2001
in response to ours to him of 5 December 2000 (also enclosed).
Although this letter confirmed the delay in implementing the requirement
to de-gas prior to export to 8 January 2001, it seems to acknowledge
that the Department recognised that the Regulations would require
the removal of CFCs in foam even though they were, initially,
taking a pragmatic stance to implementation.
