HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 cc1413-5W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning how many local authorities have resolved to prepare a scheme under Section 6 of the 1932 Act; how many have prepared and submitted to him a scheme under Section 6; how many schemes have been the subject of a local inquiry as provided by Regulation 15 (1) of the Provisional Rules and Orders, 1933; and how many schemes have been approved by him under Section 8 of the 1932 Act.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The present position in England and Wales is shown in the following table; but I would remind the hon. Member that, under the Town and Country Planning (Interim Development) Act, 1943, all land not the subject of an operative scheme or of a resolution in force to prepare a scheme is now deemed to be subject to such a resolution. Local inquiries were held in the case of each of the 157 schemes which have received Ministerial approval and are now operative, and, in addition, 122 local inquiries have been held into schemes submitted but not yet approved.

Sir L. Lyle

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he will retain after the war, at State expense, selected evidence of enemy action which will afford foreign visitors an idea of the national experiences of 1939–44.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

No, Sir.
