§ Ms Ruddock
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when he proposes to complete the designation of the Ramsey Island, St. David's Coast, Strumble Head proposed special protection area and the Carmarthen Bay candidate special protection area. 
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
Consultation is taking place regarding the proposed classification of Ramsey and St. David's coast as a special protection area. Strumble head is not being proposed for such classification and our 27W additional bird counts are needed to assess whether Carmarthen bay qualifies for consideration as a special protection area.
