HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 c104W
115. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning why, having regard to Section 32 (3) of the Interpretation Act, 1889, his predecessor made regulations, concerning development charge, which could only be revoked or varied by statute.

Mr. Lindgren

This is a matter on which the opinions of lawyers differ, but my right hon. Friend does not propose to reduce, either by legislation or regulation, the present rate of development charge.
