Mr. Callaghan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many acres of green belt have been used for urban development in the last five years; and if he will make a statement on Government policy.

Information is not available centrally in the form requested, but individual local authorities may be able to provide information about green belt decisions in their areas. Government policy is set out in "Planning Policy Guidance note 2" published by HMSO in January 1988.
