HC Deb 02 December 1993 vol 233 c651W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total cost of payments to landowners in respect of sites of special scientific interest; how many landowners received such grants in each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Yeo

Details of the cost of management agreements entered into with landowners in such circumstances and of grants paid in respect of SSSIs are published in the annual reports of English Nature and of the former Nature Conservancy Council, copies of which are in the Library of the House.
