HC Deb 30 July 1930 vol 242 cc514-5W

asked the First Commissioner of Works when work will begin on the building of the new exchange at Ipswich; and why it has taken so much time to arrange for the conveyance of the land seeing that the price was agreed upon in March last?


The Ipswich prison site is being acquired by the local authority, who are willing to convey part of it to my Department for Employment Exchange purposes. The price has not yet been settled, as the local authority are not yet owners, and the exact area required has only recently been determined. I cannot say definitely when work will begin, but my hon. Friend may be assured that there will be no avoidable delay.
