To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement concerning his policy towards the retention of existing green belts and national parks in Wales.

In December 1989 the Countryside Commission announced a major review of the means by which national parks' purposes are pursued. The review, which was endorsed by my right hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment, is expected to make recommendations on the way forward for the parks into the next century.
