HC Deb 20 April 1994 vol 241 c534W
Mr. Raynsford

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many of the responses to the consultation paper on "London: Making the Best Better", raised topics on which responses were not specifically invited; and if he will list each such topic, indicating the level of support from the public which it attracted.

Sir George Young

Question 1 of the questionnaire in "London: Making the Best Better" invited respondents to select aspects of London they appreciate from a list of 62 topics, with space to write in other aspects if they wished. All the other questions were open-ended and gave respondents free rein to raise the issues which concerned them about London. Distinctions between topics on which views were or were not specifically invited did not, therefore, arise and all the views expressed were taken into account in the analysis.
