HC Deb 22 April 1948 vol 449 c166W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health what reply he proposes to send to a letter from Mr. John Edmonds of 9 Springfield Gardens, West Wickham, dated 15th April, who, in view of his inability to obtain licences is compelled to discharge his men; and whether he will issue licences for the work that Mr. Edmonds has in hand, especially that in the area of the rural district council of Crowborough.

Mr. Bevan

I should not feel justified in questioning the decision of the local authority which has already been given in this matter.
