HC Deb 14 April 1937 vol 322 cc1008-9
73. Miss Cazalet

asked the Minister of Health how many appeals he has received from local authorities in connection with the erection of new dwelling-houses, and how many he has upheld?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Mr. R. S. Hudson)

I understand that my hon. Friend wishes to know the number of appeals made under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1932, against the refusal of local authorities to permit development. The total number of appeals during the years 1933 to 1936 was 2,087. In 600 of these the local authority was upheld, and in 346 the appellant was successful. The remainder were either withdrawn or settled by agreement.
