The Council for the Protection of Rural England attacked Labour after its front-bench spokesman Keith Vaz said the party was more in favour of out-of-town shopping development than the government.

The Independent (21 Sept p2) reported that Mr Vaz told planners, politicians and developers that out-of-town supermarkets were innovative, exciting, the 'best in the world' and Whitehall should not stand in the way of 'this retail revolution'.

CPRE's Neil Sinden pledged that the council would fight any attempt by a Labour government to relax restrictions on new out-of-town developments.
