§ Mr. Carol Johnson
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress has been made in the discussions with local planning authorities about the extension of the Metropolitan Green Belt; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Crossman
Discussions have been held with a number of the local planning authorities round London but, as I indicated in my reply on 18th May to a Question from the hon. Member for Sevenoaks (Sir J. Rodgers), further consideration of the proposed extensions to the Metropolitan Green Belt must be linked with the Government's conclusions on the South East Study.
