HC Deb 19 July 2004 vol 424 cc9-10WS
The Minister for Housing and Planning (Keith Hill)

I have today laid before the House a copy of the planning inspectorate's annual report and accounts for 2003–04.

The report gives an overview of the performance of the inspectorate and highlights the ways in which it is contributing to the Government's planning reform agenda. It demonstrates the importance of a credible, accessible planning tribunal service which is open, transparent and impartial.

Copies of the report have been made available in the Libraries of the House.
