HC Deb 09 February 1948 vol 447 c25W
Mr. Nally

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he is able to announce the date of the Appointed Day under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947.

Mr. Silkin

Yes. The Appointed Day will be 1st July, 1948. The Secretary of State for Scotland and I have just made Orders to that effect. I had perhaps better make it clear that the Central Land Board is not yet in a position to deal with correspondence or inquiries. The Secretary of State and I will arrange for a public announcement to be made when the Board opens for business.
