This was underlined by the fact that The UK Action Plan was a Command Paper and presented to Parliament by the Secretaries of State for Environment, Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Transport, Defence, National Heritage, Employment, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, the President of the Board of Trade, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Minister for Overseas Development.

Broader dilemmas arise from the practicality and cultural politics of seeking to ‘plan for nature’. Rooted in the very language of BAPs is a belief that nature is something that can be regulated to achieve precise, human objectives. This perspective rather marginalizes the view that the value of the natural world lies, in part, in its capacity to ‘function outside human planning’ (Adams 1996, p173; Evans, 1996). A related concern is that the ethics underpinning BAPs are anthropocentric and selective (Green, 2000; Marren, 2000): rationalizing conservation based on the contribution species and habitats can make to human life rather than any moral duty we may have to nature.

This was a more detailed version of the first report aimed at informing the implementation of the UK action plan. The document provided more detail on the objective-led approach that the group wished to see the UK adopt. It contained detailed examples of species and habitat action plans, and it began to address the issue of costing biodiversity targets.
