An initial debate has taken place within the Council on the subject of the Commission's proposal for a Council Regulation (COM (90) 498 of 9.1.1991) concerning specific action to protect the environment of the coastal areas and coastal waters of the Irish Sea, North Sea, Baltic Sea and north-east Atlantic Ocean (NORSPA).
