To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for the future of the Heartlands area of Birmingham.

Having considered the problems of the area carefully, and having received proposals from Birmingham Heartlands Limited and the Birmingham city council, I am pleased to announce that I propose to establish a Birmingham Heartlands urban development corporation. The necessary statutory order will be laid before the House as soon as possible. I am also pleased to announce that Sir Reginald Eyre has agreed to become the chairman of the development corporation.
