§ 2. Commander Maitland
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning how many applications have been made to him for interim preservation orders under Section 8 of the Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Act, 1943; how many orders have been approved; and whether any of them relate to open spaces controlled by local authorities.
§ Mr. Silkin
One hundred and six tree preservation orders have been submitted for my approval and of this number 76 have been confirmed and 24 are still under consideration. None of these orders 780 relates to open spaces controlled by local authorities.
