Mr. Hardy

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many hectares within sites of special scientific interest have been(a) seriously damaged and (b) destroyed in respect of their conservation value during the last 10 years. [11486]

Mr. Clappison

Statistical information on damage to SSSIs in Great Britain is set out in the annual reports of the former Nature Conservancy Council. Since 1 April 1991 similar details for England, Scotland and Wales have been contained in the annual reports of the country agencies and, for Great Britain, in that of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee. Copies of these reports are in the Library.
