§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to reply to the request of the West Midlands County Council that he use his powers to prevent the demolition and redevelopment of the main post office, Victoria Square, Birmingham.
§ Mr. John Silkin
As the permissions in question were given by the Birmingham City Council I am sending a copy of the County Council's letter of 25th March to Birmingham asking for the City Council's comments. I understand that the City Council decided on 2nd March to investigate the cost of revoking planning permission for the redevelopment proposed.
