26. Mr. Francois

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions when he intends to introduce legislation to reform the planning process. [55555]

Following consideration of the responses to the Green Paper consultation we would hope to press ahead as soon as possible with those reforms requiring legislation, subject to parliamentary time being available.
