HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 cc214-5
4. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning to what extent the proposed national parks areas are affected by the Government's proposals regarding Service-training areas.

Mr. Silkin

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Spen Valley (Lieut.-Colonel Sharp) on 18th February, of which I am sending him a copy.

Sir Henry Morris-Jones

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us when we may expect to have the White Paper promised by the Prime Minister last week?

Mr. Silkin

That hardly arises on this Question.

Mr. Marples

In the case of Service Departments proposing to take over parts of the land allocated to national parks, will the right hon. Gentleman ensure that there is some public inquiry or opportunity for ventilation of public opinion?

Mr. Silkin

Certainly, Sir; the Prime Minister gave that assurance last week.
