Will my right hon. Friend accept my congratulations on grasping the problem of the gap between how people want to live and how people do not want others to live near them? Does he recognise that those of us who represent urban areas will be concerned by any increase in density in our areas? Does he accept that, in planning for an increase in households, there is a need to take into account that what may be a brown-field or under-used site to some hon. Members is a breathing space for those of us who live in urban areas? We do not want more and more town cramming—there must be a balance throughout the country.
