§ Mr. James Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why there has been the long delay in reaching his decision to adopt the intensive livestock units plan of the Humberside county council, which he received on 6 March 1981.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
This local subject plan contains certain novel proposals to which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food objected under the provisions of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980. These objections have raised particular difficulties which are still under discussion.
