HC Deb 01 March 1965 vol 707 cc188-9W
Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will introduce legislation to reinforce the provisions of Section 36 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1962 in order to give local authorities effective power to abate injury to amenity arising from the condition of small vacant sites in urban areas.

Mr. MacColl

My right hon. Friend does not think the existing provisions need reinforcing; but perhaps the hon. Member would let me know what difficulties he has in mind.
