§ Mr. Jessel
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to give his planning decision on the Twickenham riverside site; and if he will inform the hon. Member for Twickenham of his decision no later than he informs the local planning authority and the developers.
§ Mr. Yeo
The inspector's report on the application by Marks and Spencer plc in relation to the site is currently under consideration and we hope to issue a decision shortly. I can also confirm that the issue of the decision will be co-ordinated, so that notification to the local planning authority, the applicant and the hon. Member for Twickenham are dispatched at the same time.
