HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 cc1148-9
12. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what effect he estimates that the proposals in the Transport Bill will have on the time taken to build houses.

Mr. MacColl

None, Sir.

Mr. Campbell

Has the hon. Gentleman considered the inflexibility the Bill will produce—for example, through the periods of several weeks required by Clause 67 for certain applications for the carrying by road of building materials?

Mr. MacColl

There are provisions in the Bill for flexibility in dealing with urgent cases.
