HC Deb 04 May 1950 vol 474 cc243-4W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning if the development of the gravel pit in the vicinity of Darenth, a beauty spot, was first approved by a representative of his Department.

Mr. Dalton

No. Nor is any such approval required, since the granting of permissions is in the first instance the responsibility of the local planning authority.
