§ Mr. Hardy
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what area of the Berwyn Mountains has been excluded from the site of special scientific interest in this area.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
An area of about 9,000 acres within the Berwyn Mountains was notified as a site of special scientific interest in 1957. I understand that the Nature Conservancy Council intends to notify a further area of approximately 27,000 acres as a site of special scientific interest in that locality. In that event, approximately 17,000 acres within the Berwyn Mountains area would not be included.
