134. Mrs. Manning

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what representations have been made to him by the county boroughs of East Ham and West Ham to compulsorily acquire further sites on Wanstead Flats for building purposes

Mr. Silkin

I understand that the County Borough Council of West Ham intend to submit for my confirmation a Compulsory Purchase Order under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1944, in respect of 163 acres of Wanstead Flats for the erection of permanent houses, and that the County Borough Council of East Ham will oppose the project.
