HC Deb 18 November 1970 vol 806 cc418-9W
Mr. Charles Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what research and inquiries into land use are being carried out currently by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

A study is being carried out jointly by my Department, the Department for the Environment and the local authorities to produce a standard land use classification for all departments and authorities having an interest in land. It is hoped that this will eventually make it practicable to arrange that all information about land use is comparable.
