§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has as to the number of occasions in the last 10 years on which planning permission has been granted to allow building on green belt land other than for green belt uses.
§ Mr. Tracey
This information is not available within the Department. Most planning applications for development in the green belt do not come to the Department and no central record is kept of the decisions of local planning authorities.
