HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 cc591-2W
Brigadier-General Brown

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Bradfield Rural District Council have sanctioned plans for the Imperial Tobacco Company to build a factory in their rural area on good agricultural land; and whether he will withhold his consent to the proposal until he is satisfied that it will not interfere with the plans for a green belt round Reading, and the amenities of the people who live there where unemployment hardly exists?

Mr. Elliot

I am ascertaining the exact position and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend.
