§ Mr. Carmichael
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will make a statement on the Stevens Report on planning control over the mineral working.
§ Mr. Millan
I am placing copies of my response in the Library today and it will be circulated to local authorities in Scotland and other interested parties. I wish to record my thanks to Sir Roger Stevens and his committee for their work and to acknowledge the contribution of all those who commented on the report.
