HC Deb 27 April 1944 vol 399 cc946-7W
Major Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in considering post-war planning, he contemplates any form of control on advertising on hoardings in Scotland in order to prevent the obscuring of the beauties of the country.

Mr. Johnston

Power to control advertisements, including advertisements on hoardings, is contained in the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Acts and the Advertisements Regulation Acts, 1907 and 1925. The question whether any alteration of these powers is necessary will be one of the subjects to be considered in connection with post-war planning.
