HC Deb 16 November 1948 vol 458 c16W
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.
