asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce amending legislation at an early date to rectify the consequences on town and country planning resulting from the recent decision in the case of Burgess v. Jarvis and others in the Court of Appeal which precludes a local planning authority from serving a fresh enforcement notice where such a notice was previously served under Section 75 of the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, more than five years ago and has now become invalid by reason of the said decision.

I am studying the effects of this decision and will write to the hon. Member.
