§ 22. Mr. Laurence Robertson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will make a statement on the new sub-regional household projection figures for Gloucestershire, with particular reference to the figure contained in the county's structure plan. 
§ Mr. Caborn
The Secretary of State has made the 1996-based household projections available to the regional planning bodies to assist them with the preparation of regional planning guidance. The House would not expect me to comment on the Gloucestershire Structure Plan because of the Secretary of State's quasi-judicial role in planning matters.
