§ 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.
