§ 25. Mr. Devlin
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what representations he has received about the construction of pylon lines in Teesside.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
My right hon. Friend is considering applications for his consent to install two such lines on Teeside—between Norton and Saltholme and between Lackenby and Picton. In respect of the Norton—Saltholme proposals, four objections have been received from individuals within the time allowed for such objections and three objections, including one from a relevant planning authority, outside that time. In the case of the Lackenby—Picton proposals, two objections have been received from relevant planning authorities, and over 400 other objections from individuals, together with nine petitions.
