§ Sir W. Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether it is still his intention to introduce regulations under the Town and Country Planning Acts to abolish the right of appeal against the refusal to consent by local planning authorities for outdoor signs; and whether he will have further consultations with all the interests concerned in this matter before reaching any final decision.
§ Mr. Skeffington
As my noble Friend the Joint Parliamentary Secretary said on 15th October in another place, the Government have recently received proposals from the Outdoor Advertising Council for alternative arrangements for advertisement appeals. We are giving the subject further consideration and discussing it with the local authority associations and others. Meanwhile we shall not lay regulations ending appeals.
