To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, pursuant to his answer of 5 April, Official Report, columns 830–31, to the hon. Member for Islington, South and Finsbury (Mr. Smith) if his consultation invited representations both in favour and opposed to Highland regional council's draft structure plan; and if he will set out in the Official Report the terms on which representations were sought.
My right hon. and learned Friend was not responsible for the advertisement of Highland regional council's structure plan review; this was a matter for the regional council. As the relevant legislation requires, the council invited objections to the plan, indicating that they should be made in writing to the secretary of the Scottish Development Department before 2 March 1990.
