The information is as follows:
(a) Warnings: The following table shows the total number of written warnings issued by the Environment Agency to companies in England for breaches of environmental law for the period since 2010.
|Calendar year||Number of written warnings issued by the Environment Agency in England|
|Total for period||61,980|
Due to the high volume, as recorded in the above table, it would incur disproportionate cost to collate the names of the individual companies who received such warnings.
Records of any warning or warnings issued to the operator of a permitted site are held on the Environment Agency’s public registers, which can be viewed at the relevant Environment Agency area office. Alternatively, any individual may request information from the Environment Agency National Customer Contact Centre on a particular site or sites by telephoning 03708 506 506 or emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
(b) Prosecutions: The Environment Agency has successfully prosecuted 760 companies in England over the last five full calendar years. A list of the companies, in each year, will be placed in the House Library.
