HC Deb 08 July 1992 vol 211 c232W
Mr. Gill

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will publicise the results of his Department's study into moorland grazing pressure on the Long Mynd, Shropshire, "An Assessment of Heather Utilisation by Sheep on the Long Mynd, 1990"; and if he will make a statement on its findings.

Mr. Curry

This report was produced to aid discussions between the Department, English Nature and the National Trust—as landlords—on the measures to be taken for the conservation of the Long Mynd. All three parties have now received copies of the report which will be of particular value in formulating the proposals for the Shropshire hills environmentally sensitive area on which I shall be seeking views in 1993.
