HC Deb 11 February 1977 vol 925 cc853-4W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in the interests of open government, he will publish the confidential document which he has circulated on the future of new towns.

Mr. Shore

I have not circulated a confidential document on the future of new towns but a letter was sent on my behalf to the Chairmen of five new town development corporations on 19th January. The nature and purpose of this approach was explained in my reply of 7th February to the hon. and learned Member for South Fylde (Mr. Gardner).—[Vol. 925, c. 532.]
