HC Deb 24 February 1999 vol 326 c288W
Mr. Dalyell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on the problems experienced in obtaining planning permission for the Jubilee Line extension; and what assessment he has made of practice in this respect in Hong Kong. [71116]

Dr. Reid

In only one case, namely the development of the Canada Water bus station, was London Underground obliged to take steps to appeal against the refusal by the local planning authority to approve certain reserved planning matters relating to the development.

I am not in a position to comment on practice in this respect in Hong Kong.
