§ Lord Melchett
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they will advise the EEC of more areas that qualify for protection under Articles 3 and 4 of Directive 79/409, when further sites will be listed under the Ramsar Convention, and whether they will make a statement.
§ Lord Skelmersdale
Consultations are not yet complete on the further sites identified by the Nature Conservancy Council as possible areas for protection under the EEC Directive 79/409 and the Ramsar Convention. It is hoped to add to the seven sites already designated under Article 4 of the directive, and the 19 sites listed under the convention by this summer
