HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 c1852
2. Mr. Gibson-Watt

asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he expects to receive the report of his consultants on the proposed new town in Mid-Wales.

Mr. Finch

By 31st December next.

Mr. Gibson-Watt

In view of the news given last Tuesday, does the Secretary of State still consider this as a feasible project, or does he think that in the circumstances in which we find ourselves, plans for a new town in Wales are virtually pie in the sky?

Mr. Finch

I cannot agree with the hon. Member. I think that we are quite confident that a new town will be established in Mid-Wales in the near future. As the hon. Member knows, the matter is in the hands of consultants, and we hope to get some definite report by 31st December.
