HC Deb 24 February 1987 vol 111 cc199-200W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he plans any changes to the policy announced by his predecessor on 30 April 1986, Official Report, column 412, regarding change of use of agricultural buildings, in the light of his recent announcement of a new draft planning circular in connection with Her Majesty's Government's proposals for the rural economy; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

No. Paragraph 6 of the draft circular "Development Involving Agricultural Land" would reaffirm the Government's existing policy on re-use of redundant buildings in Green Belts and elsewhere.
