HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c148W
62 and 63. Mr. Price-White

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) if he has considered the request from representatives of civil servants at Llandudno to receive a deputation to discuss the question of the return of civil servants from Llandudno to London; has he agreed to receive such a deputation; has the telegramme despatched on behalf of such civil servants in November last requesting an assurance of a quick return to their homes in London been considered by him; and what reply was sent;

(2) whether, in view of the statement recently made by a Treasury official, which has received wide publicity, complete return of Civil Service staffs from Llandudno to London, with consequent release of requisitioned hotel properties at Llandudno, is to be completed before 1948.

Mr. Dalton

I am anxious to move the staff at Llandudno as soon as possible, but no statement such as the hon. Member mentions has been authorised by the Treasury, and I received no telegram on this subject last November. I have undertaken, as requested, to see a departmental deputation. But I am first seeing a deputation next week from the staff side of the National Whitley Council.
