To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will review the mineral policy guidance notes of January 1988 to take into account the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Planning and Compensation Act 1991.

Minerals planning guidance notes—MPGs—are kept continuously under review in order to take account of legislative and other changes. Two MPGs were issued in January 1988—MPGI "General Considerations and the Development Plan System" and MPG2 "Applications, Provisions and Conditions"—and we intend to review MPG! to reflect recent changes in the development plans system. A draft is expected to issue for consultation later this year.
