HC Deb 26 July 1990 vol 177 c595W
Mr. Macdonald

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many posts will be required by the proposed natural heritage agency; and if he will make a statement.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Scottish Natural Heritage will inherit the staff of the Countryside Commission for Scotland and the Nature Conservancy Council for Scotland. I am not yet in a position to quantify the total complement of staff which the new body will require.
