HC Deb 03 July 1989 vol 156 cc66-7W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to receive notification under circular 18/84 of proposal, for new boundary fencing at HMS Cambridge, Wembury; and when he is planning to hold a public inquiry.

Mr. Chope

[holding answer 20 June 1989]: My hon. Friend the then Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces undertook to follow the procedures for Crown development laid down in circular 18/84. But it is for his Department to decide how to proceed within the terms of that circular. If the proposal is referred to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State he will then decide whether the proposal should proceed by way of a non-statutory local inquiry, an informal hearing or the exchange of written representations.
