HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1512-3W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that, fronting the Stockwell tube station, Clapham Road, S.W. 9, there is an area of some acreage, formerly occupied by railway workshops, and now considered locally as suitable for a housing site; and will he state, with regard to this land, which is Crown property, what leases or commitments attach to it, and whether it can be made available for the erection of dwellings suitable for working-class tenants?


The area in question was acquired by the Commissioners of Crown Lands, by arrangement with the Ministry of Transport, with a view to its utilisation as a site for dwellings for working-class tenants displaced on account of demolitions in connection with the new Charing Cross Bridge. Meantime it has been let on short tenancy.
