HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c685W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what criteria he employs before deciding to revoke planning decisions granted in previous years by one of his predecessors; and what weight he gives to the recommendations of the Countryside Commission.

Mr. Denis Howell:

When deciding whether to confirm or make a revocation order my right hon. Friend examines the merits of the case: he has due regard to any recommendations by the Countryside Commission.
