HC Deb 11 December 1967 vol 756 cc40-1W
Mr. E. Rowlands

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has advised planning authorities in large towns and cities to limit their shopping development in accordance with the principles laid down in paragraph 26 of his Department's pamphlet, dated February, 1967, and its accompanying letter.

Mr. MacDermot

Yes; the covering letter to the Department's pamphlet emphasised that the "conversion factor"—set out in paragraph 26—should be decided with the greatest care.
