§ 18. Sir R. Thompson
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the rebuilding of East Croydon Station will be permitted to proceed in the light of the resrtictions announced on office building in south-east England.
§ Sir R. Thompson
Will the right hon. Gentleman regard this as a very special circumstance? Does he realise that up to a few weeks ago thousands of my constituents daily using one of the busiest stations in the country believed that they would soon have a new station? While the uncertainty continues they feel sure that this will not be so. Will he look at this matter again favourably?
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
Can my right hon. Friend say whether the statement made by the chairman of the Location of Offices Bureau is Government policy in relation to the building of offices in the greater London area?
§ Mr. Frederic Harris
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the strength of local feeling that this very important development should go forward as soon as possible?
