asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the strategy for the Somerset levels and moors, published by Somerset county council, a copy of which has been sent to him.

I welcome the publication of Somerset county council's recent strategy document for the Somerset levels and moors, which represents the culmination of several years painstaking research and consultation. Somerset county council hopes that it will provide a framework for harmonizing the various interests of agriculture, land drainage, nature conservation, landscape, peat extraction, archeology and recreation and tourism. I wish the council success in its implementation.
