HC Deb 21 August 1945 vol 413 c450
69. Sir John Mellor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Treasury will appoint a day for the purpose of Section 45 of the Requisitioned Land and War Works Act, 1945.

Mr. Dalton

I am not yet in a position to make a statement on this matter.

Sir J. Mellor

Was it not the intention of the Coalition Government that a date should be appointed as soon as possible after the end of the war; and is there any reason why that intention should be changed?

Mr. Dalton

Now that we have a non-Coalition Government, we will look at it again.
