§ Mr. Geraint Howells
asked the Secretary of State for Wales from which organisations and individuals he has received representations concerning the Local Government, Planning and Land (No. 2) Bill.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
I received comments on provisions now included in the Bill from the local authority associations and their Welsh organisations, and (either direct or through hon. Members or area associations) from the majority of Welsh local authorities and community councils. Other organisations which submitted comments were the National Federation of Building Trades Employers, the Federation of Master Builders, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the Historic Buildings Council for Wales, the Civic Trast for Wales, the Country Landowners Association, the National Farmers Union, the Royal Town Planning Institute, the Welsh Consumers' Council, the Land Authority for Wales, the Development Board for Rural Wales, the National and Local Government Officers Association, the British Quarrying and Slag Federation, the County Planning Officers' Society for Wales, Glyncorrwg branch of the National Allotments Society—through the right hon. and learned Member for Aber-678W avon (Mr. Morris) and Conwy Valley Civic Society. Twelve hon. or right hon. Members have written to me, some on behalf of local authorities or constituents. In addition, I received letters from a small number of members of the public.
