HC Deb 11 May 1944 vol 399 cc2071-2
31. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning, whether, in view of the inevitable complications arising in the large bombed areas from the question of rights of light, etc., he will introduce regulations ending the causes of expense and delay formally associated with ancient lights.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

This matter is under consideration in connection with the Bill shortly to be presented to Parliament.

Mr. Bossom

Will my right hon. Friend give the matter very urgent consideration, because it has caused delays and great expense for many years, and it would be undesirable to allow that state of affairs to continue in the post-war years?

Mr. Morrison

I have given the matter very careful consideration, and I hope that the provisions I shall include in the Bill will meet the difficulties my hon. Friend has in mind. If they do not, I shall be very glad to have his observations.
