HC Deb 02 December 1991 vol 200 c20W
24. Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what measures he proposes to protect and enhance designated areas of outstanding natural beauty in Wales.

Sir Wyn Roberts

We have no plans to change the existing legislative basis and policies for designating areas of outstanding natural beauty. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment gave a full statement of the Government's view on the protection of such areas in England and Wales in reply to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Mr. Burns) on 17 January 1991.
