HC Deb 03 March 1986 vol 93 c39W
Dr. David Clark

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will withdraw circular 108/77; if he will issue a new circular to local authorities giving guidance on their role on nature conservation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

Work is currently in hand to prepare a new circular, replacing circular 108/77. We expect to publish it in the spring.
