HC Deb 04 April 1985 vol 76 c757W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what guidelines he has issued to civil servants in his Department in respect of the powers granted to him under sections 7, 8 and 9 of the Local Government (Interim Provisions) Act.

Mr. Waldegrave

Other than those cases covered by the general consents the Department has issued, each application is treated on its merits.
