HC Deb 04 November 1943 vol 393 cc839-40
19. Mr. Douglas

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether any steps are being taken to give effect to the recommendation of the chairman and four other members of the Committee on Land Utilisation in Rural Areas for the establishment of a valuation showing the value of land and sites?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

No, Sir.

Mr. Douglas

Is it not highly desirable that this instrument of planning should be available?

Mr. Morrison

That is a matter of opinion, but the recommendation to which the hon. Member refers forms no part of the majority Report of the Committee and was, I think, rejected by im- plication by Mr. Justice Uthwatt's Committee.
