To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he next intends to review local authority building control fees.

[holding answer 27 November 1990]: Regulations will be laid before the House shortly which will propose increases in building control fees in respect of the erection of small domestic buildings, garages, carports and small extensions and alterations to domestic buildings by, on average, 7 per cent, to take effect from 1 February 1991.My officials are discussing with the relevant local authority associations a restructuring of the fees regulations, with a view to preparing the way for allowing local authorities to set their own levels of fees. I hope to issue a consultation paper early next year.
