§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will set up an inquiry into the projected hotel development designed by Derek Stephenson and Partners for the site on the South Bank behind the National Theatre.
§ Mr. Channon
I understand that a planning application has been made to the Greater London Council which is the local planning authority for the South Bank. It has held a public exhibition and is now carrying out the usual consultations. My right hon. and learned Friend is not at present aware of any considerations which would justify his calling the application in and holding an inquiry.
