HC Deb 22 November 1968 vol 773 cc341-2W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will set up a planning commission to consider the land used and required for defence training purposes in the United Kingdom.

Mr. K. Robinson

Planning Inquiry Commissions can in certain circumstances be appointed under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1968, to deal with specific development proposals. That is not the issue here. The Government does of course keep land used for defence purposes under constant review.
