§ Mr. King
The Greater London Council has sought my consent under the Local Government Act 1972 to lease the site to Chelsea college for a consideration which in the opinion of the council, is less than the best reasonably obtainable. I also have before me two appeals against refusal by the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea of planning permission to redevelop the site. I have received a number of representations from hon. Members and others and I am taking account of them and all relevant considerations in arriving at my decisions, which I hope to announce shortly.
