HC Deb 27 October 1971 vol 823 cc326-7W
51. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment by what authority, having regard to the Hainault (Lambourne Fox Burrows and Grange Hill) Act, 1903, he sanctioned that part of the new road B174 which infringes Hainault Forest; what representations he has received from the Latchford Place residents and other bodies and individuals; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

My right hon Friend gave his consent under Article 17 of the Ministry of Housing and Local Government Provisional Order Confirmation (Greater London Parks and Open Spaces) Act, 1967, to the proposed alienation of this open space land for highway purposes on 27th May, 1971. No representations were made against the proposal. But as I informed my hon. Friend on 28th July, 1971, 32 residents made representations at a later date against the road scheme. I have nothing to add to the statement my hon. Friend made then.—[Vol. 822, c.99–100.]
