HC Deb 26 November 1980 vol 994 c94W
Mr. Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on his refusal to order a public inquiry into the application for consent to demolish tenement flats in Holyrood Road, Edinburgh.

Mr. Rifkind

Decisions on planning matters of this kind are for the district council. There was no reason for intervention by my right hon. Friend since no national issue was involved.
