HC Deb 17 December 1979 vol 976 c73W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the Countryside Commission's proposal to seek designation of 13 areas of England and Wales as areas of natural beauty.

Mr. Monro

The Countryside Commission is considering areas of the countryside which might be appropriate for designation as areas of outstanding natural beauty, but has not yet submitted any further orders for confirmation.
