§ 32. Mr. Greenway
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will estimate the amount of green belt in the Greater London area in 1979 and the latest date for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
Calculations made in early 1975 indicated that almost 85,000 acres of land in Greater London was designated as green belt. The Greater London development plan, approved in 1976, confirmed this area in broad terms. More detailed figures are not available for recent years.
