§ 59. Mr. Farr
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what new steps he is taking to ensure that the fullest use of his Department's resources is made in assisting the work of the Nature Conservancy, in accordance with the recommendation of the 6th Report of the Estimates Committee of last Session.
§ Mr. Soames
My officials have had preliminary consultations with the Nature Conservancy and the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland. The Ministry's reply to the Sixth Report from the Estimates Committee will be presented to them soon, and it would not be appropriate for me to anticipate it further.
