§ 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.
