HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 c187W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether, in support of the official campaigns to remove eyesores, now current in the North-West and about to start in Yorkshire, he will seek powers to close conspicuous refuse tips at present excluded from official control.

Mr. Skeffington

Local planning authorities already have powers under Section 28 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1962 to make an order discontinuing a use of land.
