HC Deb 25 June 1986 vol 100 c220W
23. Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is yet able to announce the creation of the first marine nature reserve.

Mrs. Rumbold

The Nature Conservancy Council is currently consulting interested parties on its detailed proposals for a marine nature reserve at Lundy. I expect to receive formal proposals in about two months. All being well, I hope the first statutory reserve will be in place by October.
