§ 21. Colonel Clarke
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what steps are being taken to reserve sites for Territorial drill halls and parade grounds in the new satellite towns; and whether he will ensure that the planning officers work in full co-operation with local Territorial Associations over this matter.
§ Mr. Silkin
The responsibility for the development of a new town rests with the Development Corporation concerned who will, in due course, submit their proposals for my approval. I have no doubt that if local Territorial Associations will consult the appropriate Development Corporation their requirements will be fully and sympathetically considered, and, indeed, I have asked that this should be so.
