§ 12. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre
asked the Minister of Works if he is aware that for the last year discussions have been taking place between the Board of Trade and the Ministry of Works relative to the release of the timber storage sheds of Messrs. Burt, Boulton and Haywood of Totton, Hampshire; that these discussions have still proved inconclusive; and whether in view of the urgent need for adequate timber storage space in this country he will take action to have these premises de-requisitioned forthwith.
§ Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre
The Minister says, "It is hoped." Can he give a more definite assurance than that? No doubt he realises that the release was promised in May last year, and that many vague promises such as the one the right hon. Gentleman has given this afternoon have been given. Can he give us something more definite now?
