Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 13. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Member for Hornsey (Mr. Rossi) thought that the Government Amendment as it stood would turn a situation of what he described as uncertainty into infinity. The hon. Member for Peterborough (Sir Harmar Nicholls) took up the same point in the example which he gave of the sauna bath in an hotel. I entirely accept the need for machinery for establishing certainty in such cases, and it...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 14. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move Amendment No. 24, in page 12, line 25, to leave out from beginning to ' occurred ' and to insert: (c) in the case of a notice alleging a breach of planning control which, by virtue of section 13(3) above, may be served only within the period of four years from the date of the breach, that that period had elapsed at the date of service;(cc) in the case of a notice not falling...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 14. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I suggest that we also discuss Amendment No. 31, in page 15, line 21, after '(c)', insert '(cc)', which is consequential.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 14. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Amendment No. 24 is consequential on Amendment No. 23. It makes the necessary change in Clause 14(1) by adding as an additional ground of appeal that a breach of planning control, to which the four-year rule still applies, took place more than four years before the enforcement notice was served.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 14. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am anxious to save time. I am content to accept the Amendment on the clear understanding that, when we have looked at it, if we think some alteration of wording is required, we will introduce the necessary Amendment elsewhere. I do not want it to be taken that we have bound ourselves to accepting that this is the effective way of dealing with it.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 15. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. There is a valid point here, I think. It is that the stop notice operates in personam and not in rent. It operates against the person on whom a particular notice is served, and I think that the inevitable consequence of that is that it should continue in force till that person has received notice that it has been withdrawn. Just as stop notices can begin...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 16. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Mr. MacDermot indicated assent.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 18. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. and learned Gentleman has overlooked the Council on Tribunals. If new matter were produced in a case and no opportunity were given to the parties to give it, the rules would be broken and we would be in trouble with the Council. I think that the hon. Gentleman is on weak ground.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 23. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I hope there is no misunderstanding, but I find it difficult to relate the hon. Gentleman's arguments to the Amendment called. As I understand it, the effect of Amendment No. 44 would be to provide that Sections 67 and 68 of the 1962 Act and Section 47 of the Post Office Act, 1963, should cease to have effect only in an area, for which a local plan has been adopted.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 23. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I take it that the Opposition are not pressing Amendment No. 44. Amendment No. 45 replaces the word "expedient" by the word "necessary", but it also makes another quite substantial change; namely, to bring back the link between the power to acquire under this paragraph and the development plan—inded, the development plan at the local plan stage. One of the purposes of Clauses 23 and 24 is...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 23. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not think that the point, in practice, works out quite the way the hon. and learned Gentleman is suggesting. It would be so if in fact the designation procedure had worked the way it was intended to, but, as we all know, it has not. There is the development plan; the prospective purchaser may look at it and say, "I am all right" and he buys; and then the local authority wants to acquire....

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 28 (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Rowlands) always argues his case most persuasively, and speaking for myself—and I think other hon. Members—one always listens with the greatest pleasure to his speeches. I confess at once that the case he makes out is a forceful one, and I do not pretend it is an easy one to reply to. Let me begin by reminding the House of what we have made clear...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 31. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The effect of the Amendment would be to extend the operation of the blight provisions to landlords of hereditaments. This has always been resisted, primarily on the ground that it would place a severe burden on the acquiring authorities. There are not the same hardship considerations in such cases as there are with owner-occupiers. Landlords are not likely to be under the same compulsion to...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 31. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move Amendment No. 68, in page 26, line 12, leave out 'the major' and insert 'a substantial'. This is an Amendment which was requested by the hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page). He said that the paragraph might be acceptable if it were "a major part" and even more acceptable if it were "a substantial part". I am proposing that it should be more acceptable.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 31. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move Amendment No. 69, in page 26, line 13, leave out from "the" to end of line 17 and insert: 'words "six months before the date of service" there shall be substituted the words "twelve months before the date of service"; and if any question arises as mentioned in subsection (3) above, subsections (1)(b), (2)(b) and (3)(b) of the said section 149 shall then apply with the...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 33. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I do not see how the question of grading would help on this problem about the right of appeal. To answer the hon. Gentleman, I understand that there proved to be difficulties about the definition to write the grading into the Statute. As the hon. Gentleman knows, there is grading in practice. There are grade one buildings, of the kind he mentioned, grade two starred, and un-starred and grade...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 33. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: Yes. These are officials acting on behalf of our Department.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 33. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The hon. Member is putting words into my mouth. If hon. Members want me to go into this, I would say that, with my colleagues, I thought that, not only is it difficult of definition, but that it is very hard to find an identifiable case where any real hardship would be suffered by a person at the point of sale which he could not overcome by putting in planning application.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 33. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: I beg to move Amendment No. 73, in page 27, line 15, at end insert 'and'. This is a drafting Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 33. (22 May 1968)

Mr Niall MacDermot: The purpose of a drafting Amendment is to make clearer the drafting.
