§ 36. Mr. Sydney Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the Dobry Interim Report on Review of the Development Control System.
§ 61. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has now studied the interim Dobry Report on the planning control system; if he proposes to introduce legislation; what administrative measures can be taken as a matter of urgency without legislation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Rippon
This interim report is primarily a consultation document. Nevertheless action on some of the recommendations can be initiated now; some experimental action has already been put in train. I will consider the possibility of introducing some amendments arising from the report at a later stage of the Housing and Planning Bill.
