asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the inhabitants of Writtle, Essex, are gravely concerned by a proposal to establish a knacker's yard, for the slaughter of tubercular animals, within 400 yards of the village and the decision of the rural district council to sell two acres of land for, the purpose; and can the inhabitants be assured that he will not approve the sale without first giving the representatives of the parish an opportunity of personally pleading their case?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
