HC Deb 27 June 1979 vol 969 c231W
32. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will set up another review of location policy for sand and gravel extraction in Great Britain.

Mr. King

Working parties have already been established on a regional basis to make an assessment of future supply and demand for sand and gravel and other aggregates. We intend to use this data for the development of guidelines to ensure that national demand for aggregates is met at acceptable economic, social and environmental cost.
