§ The Earl of Avon
All sites of significance to birds in relation to Article 4 of the directive are being reviewed by the Government on the advice of the NCC to ascertain their suitability for notification. A number of these are in the Western Isles. I will, in due course, place a copy of the initial list, and any subsequent lists, of notified sites in the Library of the House.
