HC Deb 20 May 1952 vol 501 c36W
79. Mr. Donner

asked the Minister of Works whether, since less work can be carried out under the £100 free limit owing to the rise in building costs, he will now raise that limit.

Mr. Eccles

The rise in building costs is one of several factors to be taken into account in deciding on the amount which may be spent without licence in the period 1st July, 1952.

80. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Works if he will make a statement on further changes in the licensing system particularly a relaxation of the £100 a year free limit in building.

Mr. Eccles

I am not yet able to make a statement.
