HC Deb 28 February 1972 vol 832 cc29-30W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment on what date the Greater London Development Plan Inquiry began work; how many sittings of the inquiry have so far taken place; and when it is expected to submit its report to him.

Mr. Peyton

The main inquiry opened on 6th October, 1970, after a short pro- cedural session from 7th–14th July. 224 days of public hearings have so far been held. It is not yet possible to estimate how long after the hearings have been completed the panel will require to compile its report.
