HC Deb 07 July 1965 vol 715 cc248-9W
91. Mr. Newens

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, if he will seek to hold further consultations with the responsible authorities about the need for an early decision on the future development of the Lea Valley, in view of the fact that the horticultural industry in this area will be damaged by uncertainty.

Mr. Mellish

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer I gave on 22nd June to my hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr. Atkinson) when I said that planning applications for proposed housing development are likely to be in the hands of the Essex and Hertfordshire County Councils before the end of this month.
