HC Deb 17 November 1938 vol 341 c1078W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health whether, in connection with trading estates established by the Government, or in course of preparation, the question of the planning satellite towns in connection therewith has received his consideration; and with what result?

Mr. Elliot

In view of the proximity of the trading estates which the hon. Member has in mind to existing centres of population, I do not think that the consideration of this question arises, but, as the hon. Member is no doubt aware, the Town and Country Planning Act, 1932, contains powers under which local authorities can develop garden cities where necessary.
