HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c665W
Mr. Edge

asked the Attorney-General if he will set up an inquiry into the feasibility of providing legal aid to interested parties to enable them to present their case at planning inquiries.

Mr. Arthur Davidson:

My hon. Friend has no plans for setting up such an inquiry. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment is considering the implications of protracted inquiries and the costs that they impose on those taking part.
