HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c567W
Mr. Favell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, if he will make it his policy to call in all applications which for out-of-town shopping centres exceeding 100,000 sq.ft. within the Greater Manchester area.

Mr. Tracey

My right hon. Friend's policy is to deal with each planning case on its merits, with call-in the exception rather than the rule.
