Perhaps it was the independence granted to him at the BBC, that led to his desire to create an independent, non-political agency to co-ordinate these functions. Whatever his own intentions it was clear, as Cullingworth has recorded, that the idea of such an independent agency, under Reith's control, was too much for the senior departments in Whitehall (including the Treasury and the Ministries of Health, Transport and Agriculture) and in this they were assisted by their ministerial heads. 74 Furthermore, Reith's goal of a national and regional physical planning structure which would oversee local authority planning was also downgraded by civil servants in the Treasury, Ministry of Health and Reconstruction Secretariat who 46 The problem and limits on policy initiation were responding to defensive pressure from the local authorities and their Associations.

5 George argued that the rent from land was an unjust impost by landowners because land values, and therefore rents, were created by the natural development of industrial society. 6 This can be seen as the 'classic' statement of the position: owners do not enhance their land values by their own actions and therefore they should not be able to keep any realised or unrealised gains in the land they own. On the contrary, since the community at large creates all betterment, then the community should recoup most, if not all, of it.

If the state was to be given an extended role in controlling all physical land and property development and encourage regional balance, as the Barlow Commission recommended, then it made the problem of compensation and betterment more problematic than it had been before. In the inter-war period, the National government was not interested in providing for state recoupment of betterment. Indeed, while it did not repeal the permissive legislation which the Liberals had passed to allow regulatory planning of physical developments by local authorities, it indirectly ensured its failure by allowing for punitive compensation payments.
