§ Mr. Body
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what is the total number of applications for planning permission made to the local planning authority in each of the last three years, respectively, in the areas of the Brentwood Urban District Council and Basildon Urban District Council, respectively; and how many of each were approved.
§ Mr. Bevins
Local planning authorities do not provide my right hon. Friend with figures of the planning applications they deal with, and he regrets, therefore, that he is not in a position to give this information.
