§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to publish his proposals for relaxing planning controls on the extension of certain classes of buildings.
§ Mr. Freeson
A list of proposals for relaxation of planning controls was circulated by the Department last July to more than 90 representative organisations and bodies. I am currently considering the great number of representations received, and on 3rd February I met representatives of the local authority associations to discuss their views. I shall announce my intentions as soon as possible.
