HC Deb 19 February 1992 vol 204 c189W
Mr. Evennett

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the environmental impact of the development of the east Thames corridor.

Mr. Trippier

My right hon. Friend has appointed consultants to examine the opportunities for development in the east Thames corridor. They are considering also the potential for the environmental enhancement of the corridor and taking account of the need to conserve areas of historical and environmental sensitivity.
