§ 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 draft78W Designation Order and this I hope to do within the next few days.
