HC Deb 26 July 1955 vol 544 cc973-4
38. Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the growing concern in Manchester about the scarcity of suitable sites for the corporation's house-building programme; and whether he will reconsider those sites previously rejected by his Department.

Mr. Sandys

I have arranged to visit Manchester in September to discuss this and other problems with the city corporation.

Mr. Griffiths

Is the Minister aware that his reply will give great satisfaction in Manchester? Can he give an assurance that he is not without an open mind so far as reconsidering, for example, the site of Lymm?

Mr. Sandys

I go there with a receptive mind on all questions.
