HC Deb 11 April 1978 vol 947 c357W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are his grounds for deciding personally to make final decision in the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 appeal relating to Nos 6 and 8 Thornton Road, Thornton Heath, rather than to appoint an inspector to investigate the matter and come to a decision.

Mr. Guy Barnett

Because it is associated with another appeal in respect of the same premises which is to be decided by my right hon. Friend.
