HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 c169W
50. Mr. Baker White

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware of the delay, arising in his Department, in the issue of licences for the building of farm cottages; and if he will take steps to lessen the period between application and issue.

Mr. T. Williams

My Department does not issue licences but makes recommendations to the licensing authorities. I am not aware of any avoidable delay.
