HC Deb 02 February 1982 vol 17 cc88-9W
Mr. Patrick McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish details of those public planning inquiries held since 1971 where a change in the law was subsequently required to remove any legal constraints placed upon the use of the land by previous Acts.

Mr. Giles Shaw

My right hon. Friend is not aware of any cases where the evidence given at a local inquiry into a planning application has shown a need for a change in the law to remove statutory restrictions on the use of land.
