HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 c283W
54. Mr. Lipton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has, or estimate he has made, of retail planning applications made to local authorities involving more than 50,000 square feet of floor space.

Mr. Graham Page

I do not have a comprehensive record, but I am aware of 35 applications for such developments outside existing centres which are currently with the local planning authorities or my right hon. Friend for decision.
