HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c874W
Sir P. Hurd

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what plans have been made for national parks and reserved coastal areas; and if he is satisfied that the execution of these plans will not be impeded by land speculation or any form of interim development.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

A special survey is being made of the entire coastline in order that proper planning control may be applied to it. A further special survey is being made of areas likely to be suitable for national parks. Final plans have not yet been made, but I shall seek, by the control now exercisable over interim development, to prevent anything being done which would impede their execution. In this connection I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling) on 13th October, 1943, of which I am sending him a copy.
