HC Deb 05 November 1992 vol 213 c382W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make it his policy to introduce environmentally sensitive area-type payments within all the national park areas of Wales.

Mr. David Hunt

I have previously announced my intention to designate Preseli, which includes part of the Pembrokeshire coast national park, as an environmentally sensitive area. The Tir Cymen scheme which offers grants for the conservation of the farm landscape is also available to farmers in parts of the Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons national parks. In addition national park authorities have the discretion to enter into agreements with farmers which encourage environmentally friendly farming.
