Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities written question – answered on 25th November 2022.
To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what assessment he has made with Cabinet colleagues of the potential security implications of the siting of the Chinese Embassy at Royal Mint Court.
A planning application for a new Chinese Embassy is currently before the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. As the Secretary of State has a quasi-judicial role in the planning system, it would not be appropriate to comment on the merits of the proposal in case it were to come before Ministers in the future.
In line with the practice of successive administrations, details of internal discussions are not normally disclosed.
