§ 144 and 145. Mr. Hale
asked the Minister of Works (1) what is the reason for the delay in opening Collinges' Mill, Oldham, as a disabled persons' employment centre; (2) what work has been done in connection with the adaptation of Collinges' Mill, Oldham, as a disabled persons' employment centre, between 1st October, 1946, and 1st October, 1947.
§ Mr. Durbin
Vacant possession of this building was obtained in March, 1947, and good progress was made until the shortage of cement delayed the completion of the work. On 1st October, 1947, however, the adaptations were about 70 per cent. complete and better progress is now being made.
