HC Deb 03 June 1938 vol 336 cc2426-7W
Mr. Chorlton

asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered a communication from the town of Bury submitting a scheme for converting premises for an air-raid precautions instructional centre; whether he has agreed to this scheme; and, if not, will he state the reasons, as the non-completion of this centre is delaying the whole scheme?

Mr. Lloyd:

The communication to which my hon. Friend refers was received on 23rd May and my right hon. Friend has indicated to the council that the proposal appears to be one which he can approve in principle. A detailed estimate of cost, however, which was stated to be enclosed was omitted from the communication and until this has been received and certain details discussed with officers of the Department it is not possible for my right hon. Friend to give his final approval.
