HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1446W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of congestion of industry and population in certain areas of the country, it is the intention of the Government in town and country-planning schemes to pursue a general policy of decentralisation of industry and population in future?

Mr. Elliot

Under present circumstances I do not think it is possible to make a statement in the terms suggested by the hon. Member.
