HC Deb 22 November 1926 vol 200 c38W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in connection with the new road scheme at Richmond, he is able to give an undertaking that there shall be no interference with the poppy factory recently installed at Richmond for the employment of maimed ex-service men?


I understand that this question refers to a possible future widening of Petersham Road, which, after due inquiry, was included in the Richmond Town Planning Scheme. The date and manner in which the widening may be effected are matters which are not under the immediate jurisdiction of the Ministry, but I feel sure that the local authority will apply its powers considerately.
