John Redwood’s intervention in the Growth and Infrastructure Bill, 16 April

Mr John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): I would like a little more information. Will the Secretary of State give us his forecast of how many extra extensions we would get in the first year under his proposal, and how many might be lost with the amendment?

Mr Pickles: My right hon. Friend recognises that this represents a boost to industry. [Interruption.] I am sorry if the idea of helping local builders and do-it-yourselfers and people who earn their own living is regarded as unimportant.
