asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to be able to approve the South Hampshire structure plan, with or without modification; to what extent the plan has been affected by the buying up of land or property in South Hampshire by the Greater London Council; and if he will make a statement.
My right hon. Friend expects to receive the report of the panel on the examination in public within the next few days. It is too early to say when his decision is likely to be announced. The acquisition of land or property by the Greater London Council is not a matter relevant to the structure plan for South Hampshire.
