§ 8. Mr. D. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Supply what is causing the delay in the sale of the houses attached to the Royal Ordnance Factory at Maltby.
§ Mr. Aubrey Jones
The valuation has only recently been completed and a decision about purchase is expected from the council later this month.
§ Mr. Griffiths
While I am grateful for that reply, may I ask the Minister if he will expedite the matter, for we have a long waiting list of people wanting 7 houses and his Department has been seriously delaying this matter, while the council is anxious to purchase these houses? I hope it will be able to purchase them forthwith.
