HC Deb 26 April 1990 vol 171 cc296-7W
Ms. Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will provide new money for the implementation of the EC habitats directive, and specifically for site protection and management, for extending environmentally sensitive areas, and for enforcement of the directive.

Mr. Trippier

I understand that the European Commission hopes to publish soon a draft regulation designed to provide funding to assist the implementation of the draft directive.
