§ Commander BURNEY
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the new street, the construction of which in the urban district of Southall-Norwood, in the County of Middlesex, by private individuals, has been sanctioned by the Ministry of Health, does not conform with the local bye-laws; and on what grounds it has been sanctioned?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
This matter formed the subject of appeals to my Department under Section 24 (2) of the Housing, Town Planning, etc. Act, 1919. My Department was satisfied that the plans and specifications would involve departures from the bye-laws only to the like extent as in the case of plans and specifications approved by my Department in the case of a road or roads constructed in pursuance of the housing scheme of the local authority. The appeal I was accordingly allowed.
