asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what response he has given to the Countryside Commission about its proposals to designate 46 sites where landowners should be paid to improve the environment; and if he will make a statement.

The list of 46 sites which the Countryside Commission has sent me represents only its preliminary view of the sites that might be considered for designation as environmentally sensitive. It is now considering with the Nature Conservancy Council to which of these sites we might give priority if the Agriculture Bill which is currently before Parliament becomes law.
