HC Deb 14 July 1939 vol 349 c2578W
Mr. Hammersley

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will take steps to remove any difficulties now holding up the acquisition of land essential for the civil defence of Willesden?

Sir J. Anderson

I am aware of certain legal difficulties which have arisen in connection with a proposal by the Borough of Willesden to use for Civil Defence purposes a public park belonging to another local authority. Amendments introduced during the consideration of the Civil Defence Bill will, I hope, have removed those difficulties, and I am informed that the matter is now under consideration by the local authority to which the park belongs.
