HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 cc862-3W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received an appeal from Mr. T. A. M'Kee, of Wrexham, against a demolition order condemning a building formerly a cottage but now a part of Mr. M'Kee's business offices and storerooms; whether these premises are still used for habitation; whether they are in any way dangerous to workmen or adjoining property; and whether he will cause impartial and full inquiry to be made before arriving at any decision in the matter?


I have received an appeal from Mr. T. A. M'Kee against a demolition order made by the town council of the borough of Wrexham. At the present time I have before me only the statement in the matter made by the appellant, and have not heard from the town council on the subject. I am not in a position to reply to the next two points raised in the question. A public local inquiry must be held before any such appeal as this can be dismissed.
