HC Deb 13 July 1948 vol 453 cc77-8W
28. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what the position is with regard to the proposed new town at Basildon.

Mr. Silkin

I have consulted the local authorities who appear to me to be concerned, and they have all expressed support in principle for a new town at Basildon. The next step is to publish a draft Designation Order and this I hope to do within the next few days.
