§ Sir W. Jenkins
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he will investigate and cause inquiries to be made as to the canals in the Swansea and Neath valleys to assist transport facilities to the clocks at Swansea and Briton Ferry as a post-war scheme?
§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he has considered the recent report of the Royal Institute of British Architects on the reconstruction of Britain; and what changes of policy are contemplated to give effect to this and other recommendations by competent authorities?
§ Mr. Hicks
Yes, Sir. The Royal Institute of British Architects has made two interim reports—one on the necessity for a national planning authority and the other on the development of war-time housing. The latter does not directly concern my Noble Friend. The former has been discussed with the Institute and is receiving my Noble Friend's careful consideration in connection with the preparatory work for reconstruction.
