HL Deb 19 October 1981 vol 424 cc661-2

171 Schedule 8, page 66, line 38, at end insert:

'Calamint, Wood Calamintha sylvatica'.

The Earl of Avon

My Lords, I beg to move that the House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 171. The purpose of this amendment is to add the wood calamint to the schedule of protected plants. The effect would be to give this plant the full protection of Clause 13. The wood calamint is a very rare plant, which is found only in one site on the Isle of Wight. It is, however, a conservation success story. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(The Earl of Avon.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
