Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill

5th June 2005

There is one issue on which we would seek clarification from the Executive.

We, therefore, seek assurance from the Executive that, while liaison with JNCC and collective action with or through JNCC should occur wherever possible, this clause cannot be used to prevent SNH, or the Executive itself, from taking appropriate action in Scotland if it so chooses.
