HC Deb 16 November 1995 vol 267 c4W
Mr. Barry Field

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to issue the proposed statement of policy guidelines for the coast. [2]

Mr. Clappison

Reflecting the importance of promoting effective management of the coastal zone, the Department of the Environment is today making available "Policy Guidelines for the Coast", which draws together in concise form a wider range of guidance and other information on coast-related issues in England. I have arranged for copies to be placed in the Libraries of the House, and the guidelines will be extensively distributed to interested organisations and individuals.
