§ 22. Mr. Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that the existing town and country planning legislation, including the development 289 control system and relevant structure plans, is adequate to protect the countryside generally, and good agricultural land in particular, from the pressure for industrial, commercial and residential development in the vicinity of the M25 London orbital motorway.
§ Mr. Chapman
I am only partially reassured by that answer. Recognising that there will be unique pressure on 290 land because of this motorway, is my hon. Friend prepared to ask his right hon. Friend to call in any planning application that is contrary to an approved structure plan to which a local planning authority is minded to grant permission?
