§ 60. Mr. Page
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will take steps to extend the time for claims under Part I of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1954; and whether he will arrange for newspaper and radio publicity to inform the public of the necessity for claiming within such extended period.
§ Mr. Sandys
I am not as yet satisfied that a general extension of the time limit for applications under Part I of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1954, is necessary. It is important that these outstanding debts should be settled as soon as possible. Applications are at present coming in very well. With regard to the second part of the Question, there has already been a certain amount of publicity. But I agree with my hon. Friend that more is desirable, and I am taking steps to arrange this.
