§ Mr. Wilson
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken to maintain the national nature reserve status of Inverpolly estate, Wester Ross; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir Hector Monro
[holding answer 22 May 1992]: I understand that Scottish Natural Heritage is in discussion with the estate with a view to the re-establishment of a national nature reserve agreement for that part of the reserve within the estate's ownership. The original agreement expired in 1986 although a five-year extension was arranged. The area owned by the estate is also protected as a site of special scientific interest.
