HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 cc99-100W
128. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Works what was the number and value of applications for building licences in excess of £10,000 received during the most recent 12 months available, for factories, works and other industrial and commercial premises; what percentage was refused; and what percentage is still held over awaiting decision.

Mr. Key

I am afraid that records are not kept under these headings and the extraction of the figures would involve an additional burden upon my staff that I should not feel justified in placing upon them. If my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind, I should be glad to have special inquiries made into it.
