asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he has considered the resolution of the Gloucestershire County Council asking for an early publication of the essential features of a national planning scheme and for steps to be taken to check speculation in land values which is going on in the country; and whether he is prepared to take action along those lines?
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." In answer to the last part, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for East Birkenhead (Mr. Graham White) on 21st September, 1943, of which I am sending him a copy.
