Supplementary Note to Questions by Beverley
Hughes MP Parliamentary-Under Secretary of State (WTC 40A)
INQUIRY INTO WALKING IN TOWNS AND CITIES
As you will know, I have received a proof copy
of the record of my appearance before the Committee, with Lord
Macdonald and officials, on Wednesday 14 March.
On reading it I realised that I had inadvertently
misled the Committee on one point. I am writing to apologise for
that, and to set the record straight.
In my answers to questions 562-566, I said that
the Government had gone out to further consultation on one of
the proposals in PPG13. That is not the case. It is certainly
true that the Government has been considering the responses to
the original consultation, but it has not gone out to further
public consultation, nor does it plan to do so.
I am hopeful that the revised PPG13 will be
published in final form very shortly.
