HC Deb 24 May 1994 vol 244 c112W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action he is taking to prevent damage by rats and tourists on Henderson island.

Mr. Goodlad

We are currently drawing up a management plan for Henderson island, in consultation with the Joint Nature Conservation committee, the governor of Pitcairn and the Pitcairn islanders, which will address the threats posed to Henderson's environment by rats and tourists. In the meantime, tourists visiting Henderson are obliged to comply with a number of regulations drawn up by the governor to minimise damage to the island's ecology.
