§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received from the Land Authority for Wales concerning the non-determination of its planning application for a bird reserve to compensate for the loss of wader winter feeding grounds arising from the Cardiff bay barrage; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hague
None. The Land Authority for Wales issued a press notice on 14 January, indicating its intention of appealing to me against Newport borough council's non-determination of the planning application for a wildlife reserve on the Gwent levels. The Planning Inspectorate will be advising me on the appropriate action once the appeal is received.
