HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc140-1W
Viscountess Davidson

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning if, before acting upon the reports of the inquiry held upon the objections to his draft order designating Hemel Hempstead as the site of a proposed new town, he will investigate the practicability of adapting the existing single-track railway line from Hemel Hempstead to Harpenden to meet the estimated needs of the proposed industrial site in the designated area.

Mr. Silkin

I have received representations about the limitations of this branch line and these are being considered, together with other representations relating to my proposal for a new town at Hemel Hempstead.
