HC Deb 20 July 1988 vol 137 c691W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what measures he is taking to protect city parks from development.

Mr. Waldegrave

Any proposals to develop city parks would have to be considered having regard to the provisions of the development plan and any other material considerations. I should expect that the amenity value of city parks would be important as such a consideration.
