HC Deb 17 March 1959 vol 602 cc202-3
41. Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to be able to make a decision in respect of the development of land at Summerston. Glasgow.

Mr. J. N. Browne

The development of this area would require an amendment to the Glasgow Development Plan. No such amendment has yet been submitted to my right hon. Friend by the Corporation, which is, I understand, awaiting the final decision on the National Coal Board's proposed new mining development at Bearsden which will substantially affect any development at Summerston.

Mr. Hannan

In the interval, can the hon. Gentleman arrange that at least Glasgow Corporation's advisers will have access to the Coal Board's plans so that it can try to meet the difficulty by consulting its own plans?

Mr. Browne

We will give Glasgow Corporation any assistance that we possibly can.
