Nature Conservation: Severn Estuary

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment he has made of the merits of designating the Severn estuary as a special area of conservation; and if he will make a statement. (142304)

I am currently considering a proposal from our statutory conservation advisers to notify the Severn estuary to the European Commission as a candidate special area of conservation and hope to be able to make a statement on this soon.
