asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received on the future of the site formerly occupied by the college of St. Mark and St. John in Chelsea; and if he will make a statement.

The Greater London Council has sought my consent under the Local Government Act 1972 to lease the site to Chelsea college for a consideration which in the opinion of the council, is less than the best reasonably obtainable. I also have before me two appeals against refusal by the Royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea of planning permission to redevelop the site. I have received a number of representations from hon. Members and others and I am taking account of them and all relevant considerations in arriving at my decisions, which I hope to announce shortly.
