HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 cc29-30W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will in- vite the councils of each of the London boroughs and the City to submit to him estimates of the additional population they could expect to accommodate by 1981, on the basis of both actual and potential developments, for comparison with the estimates based on demographic considerations being prepared by the Registrar General.

Mr. Corfield

The London White Paper of February, 1963, referred to the need for a survey of the housing land capacity of London and concluded that this would need to be done by a single authority with the power to plan ways and means of increasing the capacity. My right hon. Friend would expect a comprehensive survey of this kind, which would include a reappraisal of existing planning policies, to be one of the first major tasks of the Greater London Council.
