§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now withdraw planning permission for the extension to the Soviet Embassy following the Soviet Government's invasion of Afghanistan.
§ Mr. Heseltine
As the embassy is on Crown land, any planning consents relat-144W ing to it would be dealt with under the non-statutory procedures described in my Department's circular 7/77, a copy of which is in the Library. No such planning consents have been granted in recent years.
