HC Deb 23 May 1950 vol 475 c1847
64. Mr. Turton

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he anticipates he will be able to make a scheme under Section 58 (3) of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, for the distribution of payment of depreciation of land values before 31st December, 1950.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Douglas Jay)

No, Sir. The work to be done is such that completion of a scheme in 1950 is quite out of the question.

Mr. Turton

Is the Minister aware that there is a general feeling that there may be such delay in the payment of these credits that it will be like the postwar credits scheme? Will he look into the matter to expedite it?

Mr. Jay

We are certainly anxious to carry it through as quickly as possible.
