Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (9 Jul 1959)

Mr Joseph Sparks: I add my voice to the volume of protests being made this afternoon at the procedure which the right hon. Gentleman and his friends see fit to impose upon the House. I was one of those who sat in Committee on the Bill. It happens to be one of the local government interests which I follow in the House. We had twenty-six sittings in Committee. We examined the Bill thoroughly. In deference to the...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (9 Jul 1959)

Mr Joseph Sparks: As my hon. Friend says, we are now subjecting to a totally different procedure vitally important propositions, which normally would have taken a very different course in the House if they had been introduced here, as they should have been and as we are entitled to request that they should have been, in the original stages of the Bill. The Government are floundering so much on this important...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (9 Jul 1959)

Mr Joseph Sparks: Yes, especially lawyers. Right through the Committee stage the right hon. Gentleman tried to cage a conception of what he called free market value.

Gentleman hopes that all these Amendments from another place will provide an adequate cage in...

The Lords Amendment that we are seeking to amend is concerned with land already designated in a development plan. It is not concerned with land that is not so...

Town and Country Planning Bill: Clause 17. — (Additional Compensation for New Planning Permission in Respect of Land Acquired.) (9 Jul 1959)

Mr Joseph Sparks: There is another point which requires clarification. In the main, we are dealing with cases where a local authority, having acquired a piece of land for a particular purpose, uses it for another purpose within the period of five years, and where this alternative purpose would attract a greater value. This greater value may be paid by way of compensation to the owner of the land from whom it...
