HC Deb 21 May 1946 vol 423 cc182-3
66. Mr. Price-White

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will announce a date for the release by his Department of the Griffiths crossing installations at Caernarvon, as they would then be taken over by a commercial concern that would provide employment that is greatly needed in the Caernarvon district.

Mr. Bellenger

These installations are not requisitioned premises due for release but the property of the War Department. Their allocation on lease to a suitable firm is the responsibility of the Board of Trade, and removal of existing machinery is a matter for the Ministry of Supply. If the selected firm will communicate with the War Department, occupation of the premises will be arranged as early as possible.
