§ Mrs. Dunwoody
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will call in the planning application for a private hospital in Havant, as proposed by the British United Provident Association.
§ Mr. King
Two planning applications have been made by BUPA in relation to this proposed private hospital, since although the major part of the site lies within East Hampshire district the access to it is within Havant borough. My right hon. Friend does not propose to call in the planning applications; he considers that this is essentially a local matter which the local planning authorities should be left to determine.
