HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c45W
33. Mr. John Wells

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware of the discontent among professional men at the written representations procedure on planning appeals; and if he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to alter the present system.

Mr. Crossman

I am not aware of discontent with this procedure as such; I am considering changes in the methods of handling planning appeals, but with the main object of reducing delays in holding inquiries.
