§ 2. Mr. G. Jeger
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will send a circular to all local authorities advising them that applications for planning and development permission should not be disclosed to the Press or to unauthorised persons.
§ Mr. Sandys
Publication is essential so that other parties who may be affected can be informed and make objection if they wish to do so. We cannot inform the public without also informing the Press.
