§ Mr. HOLLAND
asked the Minister of Health whether he will give further consideration to the recommendation that Dovedale, Derbyshire, be preserved for the nation; and will he consider meeting a deputation representing the local authorities in the area in question who are anxious to make certain recommendations?
§ Sir K. WOOD
On both sides of the River Dove planning schemes under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1932, are being prepared, one of the objects of which is the preservation of Dovedale and other beauty spots. Pending the submission of these schemes for my approval action on my part in the sense suggested would be premature. If a statement in writing of the recommendations which it is desired to make is submitted to me, I shall be glad to consider them and if necessary to arrange for a deputation to be heard.
