HC Deb 20 May 1971 vol 817 cc348-9W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now make a statement on the Final Report by the Control Unit of Environmental Planning on the Severnside Study.

Mr. Graham Page

The conclusions and recommendations of the Severnside Study were made by the Central Unit of Environmental Planning and do not commit the Government. The Government do, however, welcome this thorough study of an important part of the country and will be consulting the local planning authorities and regional councils concerned about the planning issues it raises. A further statement will be made when these consultations are complete.
