§ Mr. R. Morgan
asked the Minister of Health whether he will take steps to ensure the retention of playing-fields round London in the interests of the younger 1781W generation who need recreation at the present time?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Playing fields vested in local authorities, whether in the London area or elsewhere, cannot be alienated or appropriated to other uses without my consent. I fully appreciate the importance of the retention of adequate facilities for recreation.
