HC Deb 22 November 1954 vol 533 c968

Lords Amendment: In line 27, leave out from "shall" to "to" in line 31 and insert: give notice in writing of his proposed direction to the local planning authority to whose decision that direction relates and to any person who made, and has not since withdrawn, a claim in respect of that decision, and, if so required by that authority or by any such person, shall afford to each of them an opportunity.

The Lord Advocate

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

The Amendment was put down to meet a point made in another place. The complaint was that the Clause, as it stands, made no provision for informing those concerned of their right to be heard. It was always intended, as a matter of administration that they should be made aware of their rights, but, in view of the criticism, we have put that provision specifically into the Clause.
