40. Mr. Grimston

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what steps he intends to take to enforce the conditions, which he has attached to his consent for the establishment of a cement works at Westbury, in the event of a breach of those conditions after the works have come into operation, particularly as regards the suppression of any nuisance caused by the emission of dust.

The Minister of Town and Country Planning (Mr. Silkin)

I have adequate powers under Sections 23, 76 and 100 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, to enforce the carrying out of conditions attached to the planning permission in question. I would not hesitate to exercise these powers in proper cases.
