HC Deb 07 April 1976 vol 909 c166W
40. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in the case of building a factory to which consent is ultimately given, what, on average, is the time taken to obtain all necessary planning and governmental consents in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Belgium, respectively.

Mr. Oakes

I do not have the statistics, but my right hon. Friend is examining a document which a factory developer has recently sent to him on this matter.
