§ 44. Mr. Hurd
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now state the 1810 arrangements for offsetting development charges under the Town and Country Planning Act in cases where a factory extension is to be built on land already held for the purpose.
§ The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Stafford Cripps)
This matter has been carefully considered, but I have reached the conclusion that it is not possible to extend to land developed for additional factories the special arrangements made for land developed for a house for the owner's occupation. The treatment to be given to claimants of this kind will be a matter for consideration in framing the Treasury scheme under Section 58 of this Act.
§ Mr. Janner
Is the Chancellor aware that this is holding up some very important extensions connected with the export drive, and could he possibly take into consideration special cases to enable people to proceed with their work?
