The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee will publish a Report on the Water Framework Directive on Wednesday 19 March at 2.00 pm.

Embargoed copies of the Report will be available for witnesses to the inquiry to collect between 11.00am and midday from the reception at 7 Millbank on Tuesday 18 March. Copies not collected during this period will be forwarded by post.

The written and oral evidence taken by the Committee will be published at the same time as the Report (although in a second volume).

There will be a Press Conference at 2.00 pm on 19 March in the Wilson Room in Portcullis House at Westminster.  Members of the media, witnesses to the inquiry, and members of the public are welcome to attend.  Members of the Committee will be present at the press conference to answer questions from the media.

It will be possible to televise the press conference. Those wishing to do so should notify the Committee's staff (on 020 7219 5774) in advance.

Copies of the Report will be available at the press conference.  They will also be placed in the press gallery of the House of Commons (from 18 March).  Copies not collected by witnesses on 18 March will be posted to them first class on that day.  The Report will also be available from the usual outlets, including the Stationery Office bookshops (reference: Fourth Report of the Committee of Session 2002-03, HC 130-I).  It will be posted on the internet at approximately 3.30 pm on 19 June, and will be accessible via the Committee's homepage (see below).

A press notice will be issued at the same time as the Report.
