HC Deb 05 December 1995 vol 268 c181W
Mr. Austin-Walker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) when he expects to(a) receive a report and (b) make a decision on the proposed redevelopment of the former Queen Elizabeth military hospital, Woolwich; [4207]

(2) when he expects the planning inquiry into the redevelopment of the Queen Elizabeth military hospital, Woolwich to be held; and if this conforms to the time scale set out in the inquiries procedure rules. [4206]

Sir Paul Beresford

The local inquiry has been arranged for 23 April 1996. This is seven weeks beyond the recommended time scales but it was the earliest practicable date when a suitably qualified inspector would be available. Once the Government office for London has received the inspector's report, we will issue the decision as quickly as possible.
