§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether his speech at Manchester in September represents his final conclusions on the subject of major planning inquiries, or if he is still prepared to consider variations such as those recently proposed by the Town and Country Planning Association.
§ Mr. Shore:
I have reached no final conclusions on the procedure for major planning inquiries, but my speech set out the main lines along which my consideration of this procedure is developing and how I intend to proceed in the Belvoir inquiry. I welcome the interest shown by the TCPA and others and the ideas they have expressed about the further development of the system.
