HC Deb 18 July 1972 vol 841 cc94-5W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to announce his decision on the Covent Garden inquiry; and what information he has about irreversible developments which have begun in advance of his decision.

Mr. Peyton

The report of the inspector who held a public local inquiry between July and September last year has only recently been received. It is too early to say when a decision will be announced. There will be no avoidable delay.
