The Town and Country Planning Act, 1947. Its Financial Effect, with Particular Reference to the Work of the Structural Engineer. Discussion of Mr. F. Hellings's Lecture

DR. OSCAR FABER (Past President), said the audience had listened to an excellent paper. It was a subject on which they were all relatively ignorant. He had always realised the Act was going to send some of them into the Bankruptcy Court and others into a Mental Institution, but he had not realised how impossible it was for a layman to understand anything about this Act. This was the impression he had gained, that none but an expert could understand any portion of the Act, and he believed Mr. Hellings would agree with him on that. He did not imagine they could have had a better paper on this abstruse subject than that Mr. Hellings had given them and he thought they were very privileged and should greatly appreciate having heard “from the horse’s mouth” such a wise and eloquent description of some of the provisions of the Act.
