HC Deb 19 January 1965 vol 705 c46W
Mr. Brian Harrison

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources whether he will seek powers to acquire all plot land for development after having advertised his intentions locally and nationally.

Mr. Willey

I must ask the hon. Member to await the introduction of the Bill to set up a Land Commission. There exist, however, a number of powers under which such land could be acquired for development by local and other public authorities if planning permission were obtained.
