HC Deb 15 October 1942 vol 383 cc1780-1W
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 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.
