HC Deb 05 November 1975 vol 899 c209W
50. Mr. Wells

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce legislation to assist craftsmen to use private garages and similar small sheds for their trade without the present planning regulations being invoked against them.

Mr. John Silkin

No. Local planning authorities must be free to use their own judgment in the control of development including the location of industry in residential areas.
