HC Deb 09 April 1970 vol 799 c105W
48. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will introduce legislation to establish a national State body for the control and preservation of wild life in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Mr. Fowler

No. The Nature Conservancy operating through the Natural Environment Research Council is the official body generally charged with this responsibility and there is already extensive protective legislation.
