HC Deb 11 April 1946 vol 421 cc345-6W
Flight-Lieutenant Parkin

asked the Minister of Health what is holding up the acquisition of land at Stonehouse, Gloucestershire, for the construction of 400 council houses, the scheme for which was agreed by his Department in August, 1944, and by the Ministry of Town and Country Planning in September, 1944. and the value of which was loan sanctioned by his Department in December, 1945.

Mr. Bevan:

I understand that the local authority have had difficulty in completing a purchase agreement with the owner of the land, but that a meeting is to take place within the next few days between the district valuer and the owner's agents, as a result of which it is hoped that agreement will be reached.
