HC Deb 28 January 1948 vol 446 cc162-3W
Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether it is with his approval that a large outdoor advertising sign has been erected in Whitehall; and whether, as this is offensive to public taste in a street of this character, he will have the sign removed.

Mr. Silkin

Advertisements do not require my approval, but when the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, comes into operation local planning authorities will have powers to control their display.
