§ Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will expedite the procedure under Section 38 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, to enable local authorities in northeast Lancashire to acquire sites required for dealing with the growing unemployment problem in that area.
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
I am not aware of any delays in the procedure to which the hon. Member refers, but if he will send me particulars of any cases he has276W in mind I will certainly look into them with a view to expediting the procedure to the utmost wherever local authorities wish to operate it.
