HC Deb 17 July 1972 vol 841 cc26-7W
70. Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will issue advice to planning authorities to withhold planning consent for house-building projects for holiday homes until the housing needs of local permanent residents have been met.

Mr. Peter Thomas

Local planning authorities are already aware that they have to decide planning applications in the light of approved development plans and all other material planning factors.
