HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 c85W
Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is now his Department's policy in regard to planning approval for hypermarkets; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Oakes

Cases continue to be decided on their merits in the light of guidance given in Development Control Policy Note 13, which deals with the various planning issues which need to be taken into account when proposals for hypermarkets are under consideration.
