HC Deb 06 July 1953 vol 517 c855
34. Mr. H. White

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how much of the Shanks Site, near Wingerworth, Derbyshire, he proposes to requisition; why he has ignored the objections of the Chesterfield Rural District Council, who have carried out an extensive sewage and sewage disposal scheme costing many thousands of pounds to meet the future development of this area as a housing estate; and if he will give further consideration to the opposition of local authorities to this suggested scheme.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I cannot say whether any land at this site will be requisitioned until consultations now going on with other Departments and interests concerned are completed. Meanwhile, the Chesterfield Rural District Council have been informed that their objections are being considered and that a further communication will be sent to them before any decision is taken.
