HC Deb 15 November 1938 vol 341 c670
28. Sir John Mellor

asked the Secretary of State for War the reason for the omission of the War Office to inform the Solihull Urban District Council until after work had been started of its intention to build on a site adjacent to Streetsbrook Road and St. Bernard's Road, Solihull?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Owing to the urgent need of reaching a final decision during the recent emergency, the Solihull authorities were not, I regret, informed earlier of the intention to build a store.
