Mrs Hart adds: "This level of performance reflects the proactive policies and strategies that we've taken. I think they say it all".

He stresses: "Many different authorities have been historic counties."

According to the Explanatory Memorandum of the bill, "A general biodiversity and resilience of ecosystem duty will apply to all public authorities who exercise functions in relation to Wales. That duty will be one which obliges all public authorities to seek to 'maintain and enhance biodiversity' in the course of exercising their functions (but without prejudice to the proper exercise of those functions) and in so doing 'promote the resilience of ecosystems'."
The environment minister stressed that it would be "foolish" to take the Bill forward to cover only a percentage of Wales.
"It just flies in the face of the devolution settlement", he says.
Plaid Cymru AM Llyr Gruffydd says that whilst MOD land is "quite significant, the rest of Wales is much more significant".
He asks the minister if he is prepared to "throw everything out because of the failure to accommodate some land in Wales".
Labour AM Julie Morgan asks the minister to seek clarification from the UK government on how much land in Wales would be excluded from biodiversity duties.
"I think it would rip holes in the Bill if we were to remove that section (on biodiversity duties) and therefore I don't think it would be a credible bill to take forward", says Mr Sargeant.
"We have to get this resolved", he adds.
The minister says that "it's wholly inappropriate that we're not able to manage our natural resources in Wales, for Wales".
Mr Sargeant says that negotiations will continue with the UK government with regards to the Environment Bill.
The UK government has not agreed on the consenting of biodiversity duties on public bodies, that include crown estates and MOD land.
"It is completely unacceptable that the UK government has given the Scottish government consent but not us", says minister.
He adds: "It does present to me with a difficult decision of whether to withdraw this Bill at this stage, or not. "
"This puts the whole Bill at risk", says Mr Sargeant
The UK government has agreed three parts out of four of the Environment Bill and refused consent with regards to the element on biodiversity, says Carl Sargeant.
Carl Sargeant AM, Minister for Natural Resources, says that "with regret" he has received a letter from the Secretary State for Wales consenting to only a part of the environment bill.
The Environment Committee is due to begin at 9am.
