I've been following this issue since it was first proposed in late 1997. If 
people want it they can have copies of articles I've written on this over the 
past few years.

Yes the changes to inquiry procedures were the original proposal -- but this 
is something totally new, not in Labour's manifesto, that seeks to changes 
the basis of consultation as part of the whole planning system... ergo far 
more serious than just public inquiries.
