HC Deb 16 June 1992 vol 209 c464W
Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will extend his policy of strict control over development proposals for sites of special scientific interest to one of complete protection unless there is a question of public safety at stake.

Mr. David Hunt

The revised arrangements published in Welsh Office circular 1/92 should ensure that nature conservation interests are adequately protected in the consideration of applications for planning permission. I have no proposals to extend them.
