HC Deb 26 May 1909 vol 5 cc1196-7

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the fact that the London County Council has determined to sell the land purchased for the housing of the working classes in Tottenham, he will press forward with the Housing and Town Planning Bill in order that a scheme for a garden city suburb may be submitted to him for his approval when that Bill becomes law?

Mr. J. H. WHITLEY (for Mr. Burns)

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Prime Minister on Monday last, in which he stated that the Government hope to make provision for the further progress of the Housing and Town Planning Bill when the Finance Bill has been read a second time, and soon after Whitsuntide. I can assure him that I am quite as anxious as he is that the Bill should proceed with all practicable speed.
