HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 cc467-8W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in view of the recently reported further decline in the numbers of otters in England and Wales, what further steps he proposes taking to reverse this process, such as the provision of otter conservation areas.

Mr. Monro

I am considering the report "Otters 1979 ". In the meantime I welcome, of course, voluntary efforts to establish otter conservation areas.
