HC Deb 21 April 1964 vol 693 c1084
29. Mr. Reynolds

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will call in the planning application made on behalf of Allied Ironfounders Ltd. to the Ealing Borough Council on 2nd April, 1964.

Sir K. Joseph

I understand that this application relates to industrial development in an area zoned for industry. On the information before me, I can see no reason why it should not be dealt with by the local authority in the usual way.

Mr. Reynolds

Is not the Minister aware that the company concerned paid £150 to the North Ealing Conservative Party in the last week in February and five weeks later, on 2nd April, submitted a planning application to the Conservative-controlled Ealing Borough Council—

Mr. Speaker

Order. That would appear to involve an imputation. All imputation in Questions is out of order.
