§ Mr. Clifton-Brown
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions for what reasons the Government Office for the South West issued an article 14 (General Development Procedure) Order in respect of the Tesco supermarket site application in Tetbury, Gloucestershire (Ref No. CT 0547/3/R); and what timescale is envisaged for determining this order. 
§ Mr. Caborn
An article 14 directive was issued in order to allow the Secretary of State time to consider whether the application should be referred to him for his determination and to prevent permission being granted until he has done so. No timescale has been set but the decision will be taken as quickly as possible.
