§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has as to what consultations have taken place between the London Docklands development corporation and the London borough of Newham concerning the provisions of any additional waterside public open space on the north bank of the River Thames between Bow and Barking Creeks.
§ Sir George Young
Regular informal discussions take place between LDDC and the London borough of Newham. Amongst the issues raised has been the possibility of more open space in north Woolwich. I understand that LDDC also fully supports the GLC and Newham's intentions that the surplus Thames barrier lands should be laid out as open space.
