HL Deb 19 February 1987 vol 484 cc1335-6WA
Lord Melchett

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Nature Conservancy Council are satisfied with the consultation arrangements between them and the Forestry Commission on forestry proposals in the flow country of Caithness and Sutherland, and, if not, what proposals the NCC have made to improve such consultation arrangements.

Lord Skelmersdale:

I understand that the Nature Conservancy Council has suggested that the existing consultation arrangements be extended beyond areas notified, or intended to be notified, as sites of special scientific interest. I refer the noble Lord to the answer given by my honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Scottish Office on 17th February to his honourable friend for Cunninghame North in another place.
