HC Deb 16 December 1980 vol 996 cc155-6W
Mr. Ennals

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list those sites of special scientific interest which, subsequent to the publication of "A Nature Conservation Review", have been identified as meriting nature conservation review status; and which of these sites have been seriously damaged or destroyed due to changes in agricultural or forestry practice.
