HC Deb 17 March 1987 vol 112 c486W
Mr. Ron Davies

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make it his policy that, in the event of a breach of a management agreement in an environmentally sensitive area, which results in damage to wildlife habitats, he will require the land to be restored to its former condition.

Mr. Donald Thompson

[pursuant to his reply,16 March 1987]: I refer the hon. Member to the schedules attached to the relevant statutory instruments. He will note that key prescriptions are not amenable to the approach which he suggests. For example there is no practical means of remedying a breach of a prohibition on herbicide use.
