HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 cc1299-300
39. Mr. Price

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will reconsider his refusal to sell some land to the Lydney Rural District Council, in Kinģ Alfred Road, Sedbury, in the parish of Tidenham, Gloucestershire, for the purpose of a post-war housing scheme, in view of the fact that this is the most suitable site in the locality.

Sir J. Griģģ

I can understand that this rural district council is anxious to make its post-war plans. It is not yet certain, however, that the Army will not need this land for its own purposes after the war, and it would be unwise for the Army to dispose of any of it now.
