Orders of the Day — Conservation of Wetlands

– in the House of Commons at 9:45 pm on 18th June 1996.

Alert me about debates like this

That this House takes note of European Community Document No. 8564/95, relating to the wise use and conservation of wetlands; welcomes the call for a Community strategy on the conservation and wise use of wetlands; supports the Ramsar Convention's definition of sustainable use as 'human use of a wetland so that it may yield the greatest continuous benefit to present generations while maintaining its potential to meet the needs and aspirations of future generations'; shares the Government's concern to avoid duplication of existing national and international provisions; and shares the Government's view that the planned Demonstration Programme on coastal management will be a helpful and important means of providing information on broader issues of co-ordination.—[Dr. Liam Fox.]

Question agreed to.
