§ 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.
