§ Mr. Rendel
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what advice he has been given in relation to the creation of a site of special scientific interest at Rack marsh, near Bagnor in Berkshire. 
§ Mr. Gummer
[holding answer 5 June 1996]: I understand that English Nature's Council has approved the notification of Kennet and Lambourn floodplain, Berkshire/Wiltshire as a site of special scientific interest. The area known as Rack marsh forms a component part of this composite site. English Nature is now notifying owners and occupies of the council's decision.
