§ The Minister of State, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (Lord Rooker)
My right honourable friend the Minister for Housing and Planning has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
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 Library of the House.
