§ 90. Mr. Nigel Davies
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he is aware that the Third Annual Report of the Harlow Development Corporation shows that the multiplication of controls by various Ministries and authorities has created a cumbrous machinery which hampers their work; and what steps he is taking to ensure simple and efficient direction of new town development corporations.
§ 91. Sir J. Mellor
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning if he will take steps to prevent the waste of time and money arising from the complexity of overlapping control, to which attention has been called in the Report of the Harlow Development Corporation dated 9th May, 1950, and in the Report of the Crawley Development Corporation for 1948–49.
§ Mr. Lindgren
A number of authorities, both central and local, are necessarily concerned with the development of a new town, but my right hon. Friend has taken steps to simplify procedure and to accelerate the progress of the work.
