To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many acres of green-belt land have been built on in the last two years in (a) England, (b) the South East of England and (c) the North West of England. 
The information is not currently available. Estimates under preparation, using the Department's Land Use Change Statistics, will show the number of hectares of previously undeveloped land in adopted green belt which is developed, by calendar year. I shall write to the hon. Member when these estimates are available.
