Viewing cable 09LONDON2445, HMG VIEWS ON ADDING HFCS TO THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

Discussing cables

SUBJECT: HMG VIEWS ON ADDING HFCS TO THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL 
 
REF: STATE 95899 
 
(SBU) Steve Reeves, head of the Ozone and Gas Team in the Atmospheric Quality Office at the UK Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), told ESTHOff on October 27 that HMG wants to see a phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and agrees this could be negotiated by parties to the Montreal Protocol.  HMG prefers negotiations to be initiated through "suitable" language in the Copenhagen agreement.  Reeves will represent HMG at the Montreal Protocol Meeting of the Parties (MOP), expected to take place in Port Ghalib, Egypt scheduled for November 4-8, 2009.  This meeting, said Reeves, provides an excellent opportunity to exchange views on these issues.  Visit London's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX
