§ 53. Sir W. Wakefield
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what 19W are the criteria under his regulations which enable the London County Council to determine whether new building proposals are of sufficient importance for consulting the Royal Fine Art Commission as to their suitability for the neighbourhood.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
It is entirely within the discretion of the London County Council to decide whether or not to consult the Royal Fine Art Commission on a particular building proposal. The Commission can also on its own initiative, take up a proposal with the London County Council, because it is empowered by Royal Warrant to call the attention of any Department of State, or of the appropriate public or quasi-public bodies, to any project or development which seems to it likely to affect amenities of a national or public character.
§ 55. Sir W. Wakefield
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs on how many occasions during the last five years the Royal Fine Art Commission has been consulted on proposed new building within the metropolitan area, in respect of applications which have been referred on appeal to, or called in by, his Department.
