To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the review he is undertaking of minerals planning guidance 3.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
As part of the monitoring of minerals planning guidance Note 3, views were sought on how well the guidelines were operating and whether they had created any problems. The responses of consultees are currently being evaluated and, in the light of the results of that evaluation, we shall consider whether there is a need for any revision of minerals planning guidance note 3. A decision will be announced as soon as possible.
