§ 79. Sir D. Walker-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will initiate immediate studies into the questions of the availability and deployment of expert planning staff able to implement the planning provisions of the Local Government Bill.
§ Mr. Graham Page
I have already invited the local authority associations to concert their views on arrangements, including the deployment of staff, for ensuring continuity and administrative economy in handling planning matters. We want to consider these views together with those of the professional and other organisations concerned.
