HC Deb 25 November 1954 vol 533 c171W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will examine the system of issuing permits for building in Scotland with a view to the possibility of applying the same system in London and other large cities in England.

Mr. Sandys

Yes. I must, however, make clear that the question raised has been examined exhaustively in the past and it has not so far been found possible to recommend a combined form of application for by-law consent and planning permission.
