asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he has considered the resolution adopted by the Extra Metropolitan (Essex) Post-War Standing Joint committee representing the urgency of taking the requisite steps to implement the Uthwatt Committee's Interim Report by passing the necessary legislation to prevent speculation in land pending reconstruction, of which a copy has been sent to him; and whether he can make any statement regarding this resolution?
I would draw my hon. and learned Friend's attention to the first part of a reply given to the hon. Member for Maidstone (Mr. Bossom) on 17th March, 1943. I am sending my hon. and learned Friend a copy of that reply, to which I have at present nothing to add.
