Flying-Officer Bowden

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the factory premises at St. Saviours Road East, Leicester, owned by Messrs. Willow Dye Works, Ltd., hosiery dyers and finishers, are likely to be derequisitioned and restored to their owners; for what purpose the buildings are now being used; and is he aware that negotiations for derequisitioning commenced in January, 1945.

Sir S. Cripps
