HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 cc5-6
6. Mr. Nicholas Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Wales why permission has been refused by his Department for the establishment of a tourist information centre on the A40 road in Pembrokeshire.

Mr. Peter Thomas

I have now agreed that the information centre may be established in the lay-by on an experimental basis.

Mr. Edwards

Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware how pleased I was to receive on Friday a copy of the circular he is sending to Welsh local authori- ties and to know that the representations which I and others have made to him have been successful? Is he further aware that I am grateful for the prompt way with which he has dealt with the application made by the Pembrokeshire local authorities?

Mr. Thomas

I thank my hon. Friend. May I say how grateful I am to him for the useful representations he made.
