HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 cc931-2
18. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Health the total number of departments and authorities who are required to give permission before either a housing development can be approved or normal commercial buildings carried through to completion.

Mr. Willink

I am sending my hon. Friend a memorandum indicating the various authorities who have to be consulted under the various enactments.

Mr. Bossom

Could my right hon. and learned Friend publish it in the OFFICIAL REPORT so that all authorities will be able to see it? At the present time, there is much confusion.

Mr. Willink

The memorandum which I have offered to send to my hon. Friend is in course of revision at the moment but I intend to publish it when it is ready.

Mr. De la Bère

How many authorities are there?
