HC Deb 03 August 1944 vol 402 cc1636-7W
Mr. Graham White

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give an assurance that when factories have been built by Government or with Government aid in war-time on the shore line, in their disposal first preference will be given to the use of such sites and to the modification of the buildings for recreational, social and educational purposes.

Mr. Dalton

The Government desire to ensure that Government factories which become available are put to the best possible use in the national interest and such considerations as those which my hon. Friend has in mind would not be ruled out.
