A consultation paper has been issued by Defra, the Scottish Executive and the Welsh Assembly Government. It is designed to assist the development of a robust
negotiating position on the proposed EU Soil Framework Directive to enable us to engage effective engagement in negotiations on the proposal. The paper seeks
views on the scope of the proposed Directive, as well as on the costs and benefits associated with it.
This consultation will close on 19 October 2007.
