HC Deb 30 April 1986 vol 96 c410W
Mr. Alan Howarth

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the current management information system for Ministers management objectives for the different divisions of the planning inspectorate.

Mr. Tracey

The main objectives for the inspectorate in 1986–87 are to reduce substantially the number of section 36 appeals in the system and the median times for handling them; to process other planning and housing casework effectively in terms both of speed and quality; and to ensure that inspectors' decisions are soundly based.
