§ Mr. Macfarlane
asked the Secretary of State for The Environment when he expects to complete his consultation round with appropriate authorities over the Town and Country Planning Use Classes Order; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Tracey
We published the Property Advisory Group sub-group's report on the Town and Country Planning Use Classes Order on 2 December and sought responses from consultees by 3 February. We are carefully considering the large number of responses received. My right hon. Friend is not yet ready to make a statement.
