HC Deb 06 February 1974 vol 868 c321W
54. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will reconsider his refusal to give the London borough of Brent planning permission to build homes for its citizens on Pilgrim's Way in the light of his further consideration of the Greater London Development Plan.

Mr. Eyre

The position in law is that once a decision has been given on a planning application, as in this case, my right hon. and learned Friend cannot reopen the matter.
