§ 16. Mr. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what progress is being made with the definition and identification in particular cases of near-ripe land for the purposes of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947; what procedure is being adopted in this matter; and whether Parliament will have any opportunity of pronouncing upon it before the Treasury Scheme referred to in Section 58 of the Act is considered by Parliament.
§ Mr. Silkin
Identification cannot take place in particular cases until after 1st July, as no claims can be submitted before that date. There will be consultation with interested parties in due course. I hope thereafter that it will be possible to make a statement and the normal opportunities of raising the matter in debate will arise.
