HC Deb 12 December 1963 vol 686 c123W
Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to bring into full operation the Building (Scotland) Act, 1959, and the Building Standards Regulations to be made under Section 3 of the Act.

Mr. Noble

I have made an Order under Section 32 of the Act appointing the 15th day of June, 1964, as the day when the Act will come into full operation. The Building Standards Regulations which were laid before Parliament yesterday will also come into operation on 15th June. I should like to thank the Building Standards Advisory Committee for its valuable help in the final preparation of these comprehensive Regulations and likewise the members of the public and professional and other bodies whose comments on the draft Regulations published in 1961 have also been of the greatest assistance.
