Lord Chelwood

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they propose to take to secure the development of the area known as the "Southwark Site", in the light of the GLC's decision not to proceed with an agreement to release the land to Lysander Estates Limited; and whether they will make a Statement.

The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Lord Bellwin)

An order under Section 141 of the Local Government Planning and Land Act 1980, which, if approved by both Houses of Parliament, will vest ownership of the site in the London Docklands Development Corporation, has today been laid before the House.
