HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 c49W
Mr. lain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce legislation to restrict the advertising for a use other than green belt land of green belt land whose status is subject to a decision by himself on an undetermined structure plan; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Macfarlane

No. It would not be appropriate to control advertising in this way, though I would, of course, expect any such advertisement to indicate clearly that the site was in the green belt. Advertising at present is subject to few statutory controls, but complaints can be put to the Advertising Standards Authority.
