HC Deb 21 November 1950 vol 481 c170
3. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether, failing the provision of alternative accommodation by the Heston and Isleworth Urban District Council, he will permit the continued occupation of the caravans at Rose Farm, Hounslow.

Mr. Lindgren

No, Sir.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Is my hon. Friend aware of the hardship that will be inflicted upon 30 people who will be compulsorily removed from a site which has been used for camping purposes for 25 years?

Mr. Lindgren

I do not accept the latter part of the question put by my hon. and gallant Friend. This was a site wrongly used. An application for planning permission was refused by the local authority and, after an inquiry, that refusal was supported by my right hon. Friend. So far as the people on the site are concerned, I am certain that Middlesex County Council and Heston and Isle-worth Urban District Council will show every consideration and sympathy.
