HC Deb 12 November 1968 vol 773 c57W
1. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what were the considerations governing his decision to lay the Town and Country Planning General Development (Amendment) Order, Statutory Instrument No. 1623.

Mr. Greenwood

The Order follows from the British Airports Authority Act, 1965, which constituted the Authority a statutory undertaking for purposes of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1962. It places the Authority in broadly the same position as other statutory undertakings with regard to planning permission.
