HC Deb 27 November 1947 vol 444 cc312-3W
100. Sir J. Lucas

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is intended to offer for sale the trainee factory at Wymering; whether it will be sold by auction, by private tender, or in what way; and if he will give an assurance that no single tender will be accepted unless at a competitive price.

Mr. H. Wilson

The Ministry of Labour still require this centre for training purposes and there is no likelihood that it will become surplus to Government requirements in the near future.
