HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c214W
46. Mr. Flannery

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will safeguard the natural habitat of those species of British wildlife which are at risk due to the changes in the environment of the countryside as a result of new intensive farming methods.

Mr. Waldegrave

My right hon. Friend is always ready to take appropriate action under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to safeguard wildlife habitats in consultation with the Nature Conservancy Council.
