By Jason Moore THE Alaro council ordered bulding work on the holiday home of a British Member of Parliament to stop yesterday in a dispute over planning permission. An Alaro council spokesperson said that they had taken the action because “building discipline” had allegedly been broken in the construction of an annex at the home of Conservative MP, Mark Field.

The council will now decide whether the annex can be legalised or whether it needs to be demolished. Mark Field, the Member of Parliament for the Cities of London and Westminister, bought the house about two years ago.

The council has informed Field of their decision.
It appears that there had been a dispute over planning regulation shortly after the Tory MP bought the house.
Mark Field MP
In December 1999 he was selected to contest the safe Conservative seat of the Cities of London and Westminster following the retirement of the former Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Peter Brooke at the 2001 general election. Field was successful at the election and won the seat with a majority of 4'499 and has remained the MP there since. His constituency takes in many of the famous sights of London including St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Bank of England, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and the Houses of Parliament. He takes a special interest in economic matters, foreign trade and international development, and is currently Chairman of the All-Party Groups on Business Services and Venture Capital.
