That this House takes note of European Union Document No.15409/03, draft Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), establishing a European Chemicals Agency and amending Directive 1999/45/EC and Regulation (EC) [on Persistent Organic Pollutants]; and draft Directive amending Council Directive 67/548/EEC to adapt it to the proposed Regulation; and supports the Government's objectives of developing a fast, efficient and workable process to test and screen chemicals and tackle those of most concern first, whilst minimising animal testing and maintaining or enhancing the competitiveness of the chemicals industry and downstream users.—[Mr. Ainger.]

Question agreed to.
