asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he expects to announce his decisions upon the London Development Plan.

My right hon. Friend cannot yet say, although consideration of the Plan is going forward as rapidly as possible.

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it is some 18 months since the public inquiry took place, and that this long delay is causing great inconvenience to Londoners, particularly among people who want to buy or sell property?

The public inquiry took nine months and only ended in June, 1953. There were 7,000 objections to the Plan. It is of fundamental importance to London that any decision come to should be fair and adequate rather than hasty.
