HC Deb 22 November 1979 vol 974 c337W
Mr. Wm. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on how many occasions in the last three years planning conditions have been overridden in respect of school buildings or grounds and if he will list them.

Mr. Goodhart

[pursuant to his reply, 19 November 1979, c. 78]: The planning authority for Northern Ireland is the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland. Over the past three years the Department has dealt with a total of about 60,000 applications for planning permission and the information sought by the hon. Member is not readily available.
