HC Deb 09 November 1948 vol 457 c1368
29. Mr. John E. Haire

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what changes are intended in the Abercrombie Plan relating to High Wycombe; and when it is intended to proceed with the plans indicated for the borough in that Report.

Mr. Silkin

The Memorandum on London Regional Planning published by my Department in May, 1947, made it clear that my acceptance of an expansion of High Wycombe was subject to my being satisfied, from outline plans based on adequate surveys, that the town could be expanded as proposed. The work involved has not yet been completed.
