HC Deb 08 December 1958 vol 597 c14W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what success has resulted from his circular dealing with the new administrative provisions to safeguard good agricultural land; and what administrative action is taken when application to use such land is brought before the local county or other authorised planning authority.

Mr. H. Brooke

So far as my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and I are aware the procedure suggested in the circular is working satisfactorily. In reply to the second part of the Question, I do not think I can usefully add to what is said in the circular itself, but I will be glad to consider any particular point which my hon. Friend may have in mind.
