HC Deb 02 February 1971 vol 810 c327W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representation he has received on the future development of Moston Brook, Manchester; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

Manchester City Council is seeking to use 13.6 acres of land at Moston Brook for refuse disposal purposes. It has submitted a compulsory purchase order to my right hon. Friend for confirmation. As a result of objections made to the order a local inquiry was held on 15th December, 1970. My right hon. Friend is awaiting the inspector's report.
