HC Deb 14 May 1946 vol 422 c175W
96. Mr. Sparks

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning which authorities have applied to him to make an order under Section I of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1944; and in how many cases the applications have been acceded to and compulsory purchase orders confirmed.

Mr. Silkin:

Six authorities, the councils of the county boroughs of Plymouth, Bristol, Coventry, Southampton, Exeter and Swansea, have applied for Orders under the Section referred to. No such Order has yet been made, but a public local inquiry into the first of two such applications made by the County Borough of Plymouth has recently been held.
