People who live in the Epping Forest area will be very alarmed at what the Deputy Prime Minister has said today about green belt. In my constituency, it is simply is not possible to increase, or even to maintain, the existing green belt while also undertaking the amount of building that he said is likely to go ahead. Will he give an undertaking now to my constituents that he will not allow plans to build on the ancient forest of Epping forest to go ahead?
