HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2906-7

asked the Minister of Health whether he has received a resolution, passed unanimously at a largely attended meeting of ratepayers in the borough of Redcar, in the North Riding of Yorkshire, supporting the action of the council in proposing to lease four acres on the foreshore for the purpose of a pleasure park; and whether, seeing that it is intended to provide pleasure for large numbers of people, he Will give an early and favourable answer to the petition of the council, especially having regard to the fact that it is so largely supported by the public?


I have received the resolution. A local inquiry into this application is being held to-day, and I hope that it will be possible to give a decision immediately.
