HC Deb 14 March 1906 vol 153 c1263

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consider the advisability of giving the Board of Trade or local public bodies the control of trade advertising and issuing licences for the same; and, in view of the fact that many beauty spots are disfigured at present, and that revenue is lost to the State, will he introduce legislation on the above lines.


The Questions raised by the hon. Gentleman require a little more attention than I have been in a position to give them. I sympathise with his desire to prevent the disfigurement of beautiful scenery, but whether this can be accomplished by the methods suggested by the hon. Gentleman I am not so sure.
