HC Deb 22 November 1955 vol 546 cc100-1W
90. Mr. McAdden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that development of more than one important site near St. Paul's Cathedral is at a standstill due to delay in dealing with town planning applications and appeals; that this is hindering the rebuilding of the City of London and causing individual hardship; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy this position.

Mr. Sandys

I believe that it is of first importance to try and create a worthy setting for St. Paul's Cathedral. I appreciate that this involves holding up certain site development proposals. I regret this delay and will do all I can to make it as short as possible.
