§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if his Department will issue advice to local planning authorities to facilitate the development of small firms in the rural areas, with particular reference to redundant and disused farm buildings, which hitherto have been treated unfairly as being of "non-conforming use".
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Advice was given in Welsh Office Circular 40/80 "Development Control—Policy and Practice" issued on 28 November 1980. A copy of this circular is in the Library.
