HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 cc682-3W
Mr. Michael Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress is being made in publishing a circular on design guides; and what is the reason for the delay in this matter, in view of the fact that it was in draft on 14th January 1977 and also on 26th October 1977.

Mr. Freeson:

A revised draft circular on design guidance was sent to local authority associations and other bodies earlier this year and there have been subsequent discussions. It is proving difficult to reconcile the conflicting comments received during consultation.
