No, the right hon. Gentleman is suggesting that that will somehow completely destroy the whole basis of section 106 agreements and push up land values. He painted a cataclysmic picture, of which, I  accept, rural exception sites are a small, but important part. He painted a generally bleak picture.

They are acting in the interests of their communities.
