HC Deb 04 June 1980 vol 985 c760W
Mr. Freud

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if his Department will take steps to accelerate the hearings of appeals against the location of effluent lagoons.

Mr. Fox

My right hon. Friend has made clear his intention to speed up decisions in the planning system generally.

If the hon. Member has in mind a specific appeal which he thinks has been unduly delayed, I invite him to write to me about it.
