To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the timetable for the Nature Conservancy Council's national peatland resource inventory.

The Nature Conservancy Council's national peatland resource inventory is being undertaken as a phased programme. The results of an inventory of peat soil resources will be published in the latter part of this year, as will those of sample studies of living lowland bogs. The report on the full inventory and broad classification of living upland bogs will be available in early 1991, while a companion full report on living lowland bogs may not be available until 1996.
