HC Deb 24 November 1938 vol 341 c1934
48. Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the local councils concerned recently objected to advertisements which they consider injuriously affect the views of rural scenery, but that the magistrates took a different view and refused to interfere with the advertisements; and whether he will consider strengthening the law whereby elected bodies will have more power of decision in cases of this nature with a view to protecting public amenities?

Mr. Lloyd

The question of strengthening the Advertisements Regulation Acts is now being examined by a committee set up by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and my right hon. Friend.

Mr. H. G. Williams

Will my hon. Friend take steps to make certain that the bureaucrats are not left unchecked by the courts of justice?
