HC Deb 03 December 1993 vol 233 c754W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the locations of raised peat bogs in England; and if he will make a statement as to their protection.

Mr. Baldry

A list of raised peat bogs in England is being prepared by Scottish Natural Heritage as part of work on a national peatlands resource inventory. This inventory will also summarise information on those sites designated as sites of special scientific interest—SSSIs. It is expected to be published during 1994 and a copy will be placed in the Library.
