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

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. If it is agreeable to the House I suggest that we discuss with this Amendment Lords Amendment No. 58, in the Title, in line 4, after"for"insert:"the conservation and enhancement of natural beauty and for".

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

Mr Niall MacDermot: The effect of the first Amendment is to add the conservation and enhancement of the natural beauty and amenity of the countryside ". to the list set out in Clause 1(2) of the functions which the Commission has to exercise under the Bill. The effect of the second Amendment is to make a consequential amendment to the long Title of the Bill. A similar Amendment, tabled by my hon. Friend the...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 2 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth disagree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The apparent intention of this Amendment would be to permit the Commission to place the services of its officers, or of consultants engaged by it, at the disposal of a local planning authority or other public body on mutually acceptable terms, but without the need for the Minister's approval to those terms. I...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 2 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I cannot give the assurance to my hon. Friend the Member for South Shields (Mr. Blenkinsop) that the control will never be used, since the ground on which I am advising the House that the Amendment should be rejected is that, even if we were to accept the Amendment and delete the words, in practice the Commission would still have to come to the Ministry for the practical reason that it does...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: New Clause "B" (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is another matter on which I believe we have managed to find an eleventh hour solution. This Amendment deals with a problem which we discussed in Committee, but to which we did not then find a solution, namely, the weakness in our present access procedures whereby a farmer can plough up moor or heath land...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: New Clause "B" (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am assured that there are records available for a 20-year period. It is felt, in order to establish this kind of protection, that it should be shown that the land has been in effect moor or heath and open and available to access to the public for a substantial period of time, and that is a period which is capable of effective enforcement administratively.

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 14 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 14 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: These are the Amendments to which I referred just now and which will enable a landowner to bind himself to refrain from actions which would render the land "excepted" and not open to public access. The local planning authority would be able to recognise this additional factor in determining the terms on which the agreement is negotiated.

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 25 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth disagree with the Lords in the said Amendment. Would it be convenient, Mr. Speaker, to move the Amendment in lieu of the Amendment at this time?

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 25 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The reason for my Motion is a drafting one. This Lords Amendment is now overtaken by the Government Amendment which proposes to substitute a new subsection (3) in place of the present subsections (3) and (4). I hope that the House will agree that whatever we decide about the Opposition Amendment to the Government Amendment it is an improvement on the existing subsections (3) and (4). It...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 25 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, in lieu of the Lords Amendment last disagreed to, Amendment No. 6, in page 26, line 28, leave out subsections (3) and (4) and insert: (3) The highway authority shall contribute not less than a quarter of any expenses shown to their satisfaction to have been reasonably incurred in compliance with subsection (1) above, and shall have power to make further contributions of such...

Orders of the Day — Countryside Bill: Clause 28 (24 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. If it is agreeable to the House and to you, Sir, I suggest that it might be convenient if we were to discuss at the same time the following Lords Amendments:

Orders of the Day — Schedule 4 (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 this Amendment would be to require representation by county district councils, one representative for each constituent council, on National Park planning committees, sub-committees, joint boards or joint advisory committees. I believe that this Amendment was sponsored by the Rural and Urban...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Betterment Levy (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I would refer the hon. Member to the Civil Estimates.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Betterment Levy (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not know what the hon. Gentleman means by a revenue cost of 3·28d. If he is referring to the cost of collection of Income Tax, that, of course, is a very cheap tax to collect. There are other taxes, many of them of great social importance, whose cost of collection is much greater. In any event, when a new tax is imposed the cost of collection is always high until it reaches its full...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: 4·3 acres have vested in the Commission; 14 acres are the subject of a confirmed compulsory purchase order; 450 acres are the subject of draft Compulsory Purchase Orders, and 190 acres at Hornchurch Airfield are being acquired from the Ministry of Defence. Contracts are likely to be exchange, or draft Compulsory Purchase Orders published for a further 2,000 acres within the next two months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The Commission cannot resell until the land is vested in it, and the figures which I gave show the position there. As to whether this could have been achieved without the Land Commission, the Hornchurch Airfield example is admirable. This is surplus land which is now required for gravel extraction but which will later be needed for housing and schools. Without the intervention of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: This, like other land which is surplus to requirements of the Ministry of Defence, has to be sold by them. There is no existing public authority other than the Land Commission which is in a position to purchase it in the present circumstances, for the reasons which I have explained.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: That depends on whether the Commission receives requests for disposals on Crownhold terms.

Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Land Commission (18 Jun 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Yes, I explained to the House at our last Question Time that this was a matter on which the Commission was concentrating. This is, probably, the greatest single factor affecting land prices, and our Ministry is engaged, with the Land Commission, in discussions with local authorities in the pressure areas.
