HC Deb 23 October 1956 vol 558 c467
20. Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that a brewers' trust has offered to the Welwyn and Hatfield Development Corporation to provide a community hall as part of a block with a public house, the Corporation, on account of the credit squeeze, having been unable to build a community centre ; and whether he will refuse his approval of this project as long as the Government's present credit policy is in operation.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. J. Enoch Powell)

My right hon. Friend sees no reason for interposing to prevent this project.

Mr. Viant

Does this not indicate a departure from the general credit policy laid down by the Government?

Mr. Powell

No, not at all.
