§ Mr. Page
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is aware of continuing criticism against the unsatisfactoriness of the planning enforcement provisions in the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947; and whether he will consider simplifying them.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I agree that experience has shown the provisions in the 1947 Act not to be entirely satisfactory; and I have in mind to include some amendment of these provisions in the Bill I shall be introducing to deal with problems relating to caravans. The two matters are closely related. The provisions on planning enforcement will be of general application.
