§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Health if he will explain the situation now existing regarding the various Building Acts and Regulations.
§ Mr. Willink
If I have rightly understood my hon. Friend's point, the situation is that outside London there are a few towns with special Acts of Parliament forming an exception from the general system. The general system is that building is controlled by local authorities by means of byelaws made under the Public Health Acts, and the byelaws everywhere in force are now of a modern type, unlikely to impose any improper restriction upon building.
