HC Deb 09 December 1986 vol 107 c90W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give the location of all the proposed or established marine nature reserves in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

The first statutory marine nature reserve, at Lundy island, was announced on 21 November. The Nature Conservancy Council has identified six further potential reserves at Skomer, Menai, Bardsey, the Scilly isles, Loch Sween and St. Abbs head. Detailed consultations are continuing and it is hoped to designate more sites in 1987.
