Ministerial Statement on Marine Conservation Zones

Environment Minister Richard Benyon has made a Written Ministerial Statement (on Nov 15) on marine conservation zones. The statementĀ confirms a delay to the original timetable, with Natural England and the Joint Nature Conservancy Council (JNCC) providing their advice to Government in July 2012, six months later than planned.

The full statement can be read on the Defra website: http://www.defra.gov.uk/news/2011/11/15/wms-marine-conservation-zones/
