To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he plans to publish statistics on the proportion of new development on brownfield sites; and if he will make a statement.

The latest results were published in December 1998 in issue no 13, a copy of which is in the House of Commons Library. The next edition should be published in September 1999.
