HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c113W
86. Mr. Carter

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will recommend the appointment of a Royal Commission to examine and report on land usage in its economic, environmental and planning aspects.

Mr. Graham Page:

No. The current problems associated with land use are well defined and are under constant review within my Department. A new structure for local and regional planning is in course of being introduced and my right hon. Friend has recently announced major new initiatives to increase the supply of land for housing.
