HC Deb 29 July 1946 vol 426 c85W
Mr. Digby

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is yet in a position to say how soon it will be possible to release the County Hall, Dorchester, which is urgently required by the Dorset branches of the Women's Institute.

Mr. T. Williams

The Ministry of Works, in conjunction with my Department, has for some time been seeking alternative accommodation for the staff of the Dorset War Agricultural Executive Committee who arc at present occupying the hall. These efforts have been unsuccessful and offices will have to be built. The Ministry of Works are arranging to lease a site near Dorchester for this purpose, but I am afraid it will be some time before the new buildings are ready for occupation.
