To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he proposes to lay the order abolishing the powers vested in the local highway authorities under article 12 of the Town and Country Planning General Development Order 1977.

As I said in answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-East (Mr. Kirkhope) on 4 February, at columns 711–12, we hope to lay the new consolidated general development order a short time after the end of the two-month period for comment on the proposals in the consultation paper which we issued that day.
