§ 57. Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has given any fresh guidance to local authorities on development within the green belt.
§ Mr. Tracey
Advice to local authorities on development within the green belt is set out in Department of the Environment circular 14/84. That circular confirms guidance on development within the green belt which was first issued in 1955. We have made it abundantly clear that we stand by this policy.
§ Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received concerning building on green belt land.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
I receive many representations. Most of them are against development in the green belt.
