HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 c1662

Postponed Proceeding resumed on Lords Amendment: In page 8, line 32, at end insert: (6A) In determining, for the purposes of the issue of a certificate under this section, whether planning permission for any particular class of development might, in the relevant circumstances, reasonably have been expected to be granted in respect of any land, the local planning authority shall not treat development of that class as development for which planning permission would have been refused by reason only that it would have involved development of the land in question (or of that land together with other land) otherwise than in accordance with the provisions of the development plan relating thereto.

8.30 p.m.

Mr. H. Brooke

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

During the discussion of the Amendments moved by the hon. and learned Member for Kettering (Mr. Mitchison) I explained the purpose of this Lords Amendment.

Mr. Mitchison

This is the Lords Amendment to which we moved Amendments. It has been discussed, and I should not feel justified in discussing it again. We are likely to know no more now than we did at the beginning.

Question put and agreed to. [Special entry.]
