HC Deb 13 September 2004 vol 424 c1432W
Mr. Edwards

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will extend the consultation on planning aspects of the subdivision and sale of agricultural land to include woodlands and meadows. [188080]

Keith Hill

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister is not aware that the same concerns over the planning issues that have arisen in the context of subdivision and subsequent sale of agricultural land apply to woodlands and meadows. Accordingly they have not specifically been included in our consideration of possible solutions.
