HC Deb 23 March 1948 vol 448 c306W
31. Mrs. Manning

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether in view of the admiration and interest excited abroad especially in the United States of America, by the master plan for the new town of Harlow, he will consider the possibility of completing that new town in advance of work on other new towns, so that town and country planning committees and other interested persons from abroad may visit it.

Mr. Silkin

I am very gratified to note the admiration and interest excited abroad by the Harlow plan but I could not on that account agree that Harlow should he completed in advance of the other new towns.
