§ Mr. Vaz
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his answer of 14 November,Official Report, column 323, on proposals for development near Henlow, Bedfordshire, if he will list the representations he has received from individuals and organisations in respect of the development; what acreage of vacant industrial and commercial development land there is in Bedfordshire; and when he hopes to make a decision on a public inquiry about this matter. 
§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
We received a number of representations about the proposal, and those people and organisations will now have the opportunity to express their views at a public inquiry, the date of which has yet to be arranged. The availability of alternative locations for the proposed development will be an issue for the inquiry.
