The Department of the Environment Transport and the Regions has joined with Sheila Pantry Associates to produce Environment Plus, a CD ROM giving comprehensive environment legislation and a bibliographic database.The disc has been designed to meet the needs of those dealing regularly with environment issues such as lawyers, government departments, local authorities and manufacturers as well as those who may need information occasionally such as journalists and libraries.

Environment Plus contains both UK and EU legislation and the bibliographic data includes press releases, green and white papers, circulars, statistics and annual reports.

Karen Lewis of DETR said: “Environment Plus gives users a quick and easy access to a wealth of publications. It is not restricted to a single user and can be used on a network.”
