HC Deb 14 November 1979 vol 973 cc662-3W
75. Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the differences in definition as between the Sheffield district council and the South Yorkshire county council, he will bring forward legislation to provide a statutory definition of green belt.

Mr. King

The proposed modifications to green belt policies in the South Yorkshire structure plan are broadly acceptable to both authorities. I am aware of the objections of the Council for the Protection of Rural England, which are under consideration.
