Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Areas of Natural Beauty (Designation Orders) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: That is another question. There are procedures for considering that matter as well.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Compulsory Purchase Powers) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: A few cases only have been reported. Any owners threatened in this way should report the facts immediately to the regional office of the Commission.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Compulsory Purchase Powers) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: There is no present intention to introduce the second appointed day. I do not see how that question arises on this matter. I have already deplored the isolated instances of the practice to which the Questions refer, and the Commission will ask professional bodies to make it clear to builders and developers that statements should not be made implying that the Commission's compulsory purchase...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Compulsory Purchase Powers) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not agree that the Act is becoming an instrument of oppression. One of the functions of the Land Commission is to prevent land hoarding, and it has compulsory purchase powers which can be used for the assistance of the private builder and to ensure that land is brought forward for development. That is perfectly proper. It is not proper for a builder to suggest that he has some way of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Householders (Multi-Storey Garages) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: None, Sir. Perhaps the hon. Member would care to let me have fuller details of what he has in mind.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Householders (Multi-Storey Garages) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: If, by that, the hon. Gentleman means financial assistance for private parking, then I foresee difficulties. But, of course, we realise the importance of trying to use planning and other procedures to facilitate parking arrangements.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Midlands Division) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: No operational advantages would be gained by amalgamation of the West Midlands with other regions. The acquisition programme in the region is building up. Four draft compulsory purchase orders relating to 325 acres have now been published and the region is investigating further sites extending to over 6,000 acres.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Midlands Division) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: No, Sir. The hon. Gentleman's description is quite inaccurate. Perhaps he would like to visit the offices some time and see for himself.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (Midlands Division) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: So far, 28 sites totallying over 1,100 acres have been acquired or are subject to exchange contract or draft or confirmed compulsory purchase orders.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land, North Worcestershire (Development) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I understand that Birmingham City Council and Worcestershire County Council have recently agreed on sites to take 11,000 houses on the Worcestershire boundaries of Birmingham in the Frankley-Rubery and Hawkesley-Moundsley areas: and that applications for these will shortly be made by the Birmingham City Council.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land, North Worcestershire (Development) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: We had better await the application and what is said about it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission Act (Schedule 5) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: No, Sir. It was not found possible to include an amendment in this year's Finance Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission Act (Schedule 5) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The fact that the original concession has been extended, as is reported in this morning's Press, shows that there has been no disadvantage in the slight delay in legislation. No one suffers from it. The fact that the concession is in operation as an extra-statutory concession has been reported to the Public Accounts Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission Act (Schedule 5) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not know about contradicting it. The original reply was correct. The original concession did not apply to non-residential land. The extension is that it now applies to non-residential land to the extent indicated.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Piccadilly Circus (Redevelopment) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I cannot forecast a completion date. The proposals are still in their formative stage and have been published now to obtain public reaction to them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Piccadilly Circus (Redevelopment) (23 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: If I were to affirm that, I should be giving a blessing to a plan which had not even been submitted to the Ministry, and obviously I cannot do so. I agree with the hon. Gentleman's first comment.

Orders of the Day — Clause 35 (4 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move Amendment 73, in page 30, line 24, leave out subsection (3) and insert: (3) The regulations shall, as respects every mining lease, confer a right of election as respects the application to the mining lease of all provisions made in accordance with subsection (2) above so that— (a) in the case of a mining lease granted on or after 6th April, 1968, an election may be made in...

Orders of the Day — Clause 35 (4 Jul 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am obliged. I should perhaps begin by apologising for inflicting myself on the House again in a discussion on the Finance Bill. I am sure that the House had looked forward with the same relief that I had to the prospect of my not taking part in these debates again. The first of these Amendments, No. 73, is the substantive one and is designed to meet the point of an Opposition Amendment in...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 1 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth disagree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The effect of the Amendment is to alter the title of the Countryside Commission to that of "Countryside and National Parks Commission". In Committee of this House, an Opposition Amendment was carried to alter the title to "National Parks and Countryside Commission". But the original title, "Country...

Orders of the Day — Greater London Council (General Powers) Bill: New Clause (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: My right hon. Friend the Minister of Social Security has said that she expects to publish it before the end of the year. It will be apparent from what I have said that the grounds for the Government objection to the Clauses is one of timing rather than merit. My hon. Friend has argued that the local government superannuation scheme is in various respects less favourable than other schemes in...
