§ Dr. David Clark
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied that the Anglian water authority is in compliance with section 28 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 in respect of its proposals for extending fishing and recreational activities at Pitsford Reservoir and Rutland water, both sites of special scientific interest notified under the Wildlife and Countryside Acts 1981 to 1985; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr Waldegrave
I understand that one of the water authority's activities on Pitsford reservoir is defined as a potentially damaging operation under the terms of the notification as a site of special scientific interest. This and the water authority's other proposals are currently the subject of discussions between the authority and the Nature Conservancy Council.
