§ Mr. Hoyle
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will visit the Royal Ordnance site in Euxton, Chorley, to assess its potential for development. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
The future of the Royal Ordnance Site is an important matter for Chorley and the North West. However, because of the potential quasi-judicial role of the Secretary of State should any proposal come before him for determination, it would be inappropriate for Ministers to visit at this stage.
