Marine Environment: Lyme Bay

Volume 697: debated on Monday 17 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many responses have so far been received to the consultation on measures to protect marine biodiversity interests in Lyme Bay from the impact of fishing with dredges and other towed gear. [HL717]

As of 11 December 2007, Defra has received 2,724 responses from participants in the Wildlife Trusts' pro-forma online e-petition, and 91 other responses. It is too early to have carried out any analysis on the subject matter of these responses.
