§ Mr. Skeffington
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs why he is permitting land formerly part of Hornchurch Royal Air Force station to be developed privately in view of the need of land for housing by the Hornchurch Urban District Council.
§ Sir K. Joseph
I have not yet made any decision relating to this land. Three planning applications which were referred to me recently by the Essex County Council are now under consideration.
