HC Deb 16 December 1952 vol 509 cc178-9W
146. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the acreage of areas of comprehensive development eligible for Exchequer Grant under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act, 1947, which have been shown on development plans so far submitted to his Department.

Mr. Stuart

So far no such areas have become eligible for the Exchequer Grant referred to. In the development plans submitted to me a number of areas have been defined as areas of comprehensive development, but I cannot say how much of this land will be eligible for grant until the local planning authorities have submitted their detailed proposals for its development.
