HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c627W
Mr. Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will call in the planning application by Wiltshire county council to site an open refuse tip at Hay Lane, Wroughton, on the grounds that such development will endanger new employment opportunities in Swindon and district.

Mr. Fox

The statutory 21-day objection period in respect of this application does not expire until 31 July 1980. Therefore, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is not yet in a position to form a view in this matter. However, the matter is being actively considered, and of course all representations received will be taken into account before a decision is reached.
