§ Mr. Viggers
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will cut back the higher trees and gorse on the Browndown site between Portsmouth Road and the sea at Lee-on-Solent. 
§ Dr. Moonie
There are no plans to cut back trees and gorse at Browndown site. As this is a site of specific scientific interest, we would have to consult with English Nature before undertaking such work, and in any event, work would not start before the growing season ended in the autumn.
