§ Mr. David Nicholson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to receive the report of the inspector into the East Deane local plan, relating to Taunton Deane, Somerset.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
Inspectors who conduct inquiries into local plans report not to my right hon. Friend but to the local planning authority which prepared the plan. I understand that the inspector's report on the East Deane local plan was sent to Taunton Deane borough council on 15 April.
