§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales (1) if he will make a statement concerning planning applications by the Welsh Development Agency and Alyn and Deeside district council to extend Deeside industrial park;
(2) when he expects to rule upon applications to extend Deeside industrial park.
§ Mr. David Hunt
My hon. Friend the Minister of State called in the planning application for proposed business and industrial development on land north of Shotwick road, Deeside because it raises planning issues of more than local importance. A decision on the application will be issued as soon as possible after the inspector's report has been received following a public local inquiry.
