Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 22 January 1957.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he hopes to be able to announce his decision on the Kent Development Plan, Part B.
A good deal of detailed work has still to be done, and although there will be no avoidable delay I cannot promise that I shall be able to announce my decision much before the end of the year.
Will the Minister bear in mind that this delay is causing great difficulty to planning authorities who want to look ahead in their consideration of submissions for the next review, and will he do his best to speed the matter up?
As I say, I am extremely anxious that there should be no delay. There were some 224 objections to the Plan, and I recognise the urgency.
