HC Deb 11 November 1997 vol 300 c517W
Mr. Edwards

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects to make an announcement about(a) the proposed Gwent Levels Wetland Reserve and (b) the proposed compulsory purchase orders; and what assessment he has made of alternative approaches to the proposed Gwent Levels Wetland Reserve. [14959]

Mr. Win Griffiths

The report of the Inspector on the public inquiry into the appeals and applications by the Land Authority for Wales is currently under consideration by my right hon. Friend. The inquiry dealt with a number of complex issues and a decision will be issued as soon as possible. It would not be appropriate at this stage to comment on matters related to those appeals and applications.
