HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c135W
80. Mr. Alport

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the difficulties facing private builders on account of the requirement of the New Streets Act, 1951, to deposit with the council concerned a sum of money against the estimated cost of adequate road construction; and whether he will assist the firms concerned to meet this obligation.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend is aware of the obligations imposed by the Act. He is looking into the problem of how they may be met in the least onerous way.
