HC Deb 10 April 1962 vol 657 cc105-6W
Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether, in order to take full advantage of good forthcoming building weather, and to avoid the loss of ratable value to Rugeley Urban District Council, and in view of the scheduled completion of the new Rugeley sewage works pumping station before the end of 1962, he will institute an early inquiry as requested by the Staffordshire County Council's Town and Country Planning Committee with a view to acceptance of such applications as have been made relative to the development at Etching Hill and Slitting Mill, Rugeley.

Mr. Rippon

With the consent of all the parties, my right hon. Friend is arranging for the applications to be decided on written representations which should save time.
