HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 c67W
50. Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is satisfied that provisions for the preservation of mature trees on new housing estates are adequate; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Skeffington

When granting planning permission local planning authorities are required under Section 12 of the Civic Amenities Act, 1967, to impose adequate conditions for the preservation of trees, where appropriate, and to make any necessary tree preservation orders. I have no reason to believe that these provisions are inadequate.
