112. Mr. Orr-Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he has taken to find suitable tenants for the Government factories at Oldmison and Banwell, Somerset, which will be vacant in the near future.

Mr. H. Wilson

Particulars of these factories have been brought to the attention of all Government Departments likely to have a use for them and several important industrial concerns in need of additional space have been invited to consider them.

113. Mr. Orr-Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade why the hon. Member for Weston-super-Mare has received no reply to his letter of 10th January asking the President to see him, and, if possible, trade union representatives of the workers employed at the two Government factories near Weston-super-Mare, in order that they might be told what steps were being taken to find suitable users for those factories when the present tenancy expires in a few weeks time; and whether he is willing to arrange such a meeting as soon as possible.

Mr. H. Wilson

I regret the delay in answering the hon. Member's letter, but he should by now have received the reply which was sent to him on 31st January in which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary offered to see him about this matter.

Forward to
