HC Deb 15 April 1965 vol 710 c252W
Mr. Dell

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources when the maximum penalty for contravening a tree preservation order was fixed; and what proposals he has for increasing it.

Mr. Willey

The maximum penalty was fixed at £50 under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1943. This penalty is something which I am keeping in mind in my review of proposals to amend the legislation on the National Parks and associated matters.
