HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c237W
Mr. W. Fletcher

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the strong local feelings on the subject, he will receive a deputation from the Bury branch of the British Legion in order to discuss their alternative plan for the housing of European voluntary workers in the cotton industry in the Bury area, which would release a part of the Radcliff Road Training Centre for us as a Remploy factory for disabled ex-Service men.

Mr. Isaacs

I am satisfied that we shall not have sufficient accommodation for textile workers in the area unless we go ahead with the plans to use Radcliffe G.T.C. as a hostel. I do not think any useful purpose would be served by my receiving a deputation.
