Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to control the extraction and sale of limestone pavement. [56914]

Our consultation paper,SSIs—Better Protection and Management, invites comments on options for further protection for limestone pavement. We have also asked the group responsible for the Biodiversity Action Plan for limestone pavement, for information on the extent of trade.
