Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether the objections to the proposal by the Prison Commission to build a prison at Merstham have now been considered; and if he will make a statement.
The objections have been considered, and it has been decided not to build the prison on this site because of the harmful effect this would have on the Green Belt.
Is my right hon. Friend aware of the very great satisfaction that that answer will give to those in this country interested in the preservation of the Green Belt, particularly this part, which is situated at the top of the North Downs?
