Mr. Dobbin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what progress has been made with the review of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee announced in July. [154636]

Mr. Meacher

We have published today the report of the first stage of the financial, management and policy of the JNCC, and have placed copies in the House Libraries. I am inviting interested parties, including the devolved administrations and the respective country conservation agencies to offer their considered views on the report within three months.
