HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 cc191-2W
79. Mr. R. V. Grimston

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the West Wilts Hospital Committee have refused an offer of land from Messrs. E. Dennis, Limited, Trowbridge, the acceptance of which would obviate the necessity of demolishing a hangar, pulling up a concrete foundation, and interrupting the repair of agricultural machinery; and if, in view of the desirability to conserve labour and materials for constructive work, particularly in the present international situation, he is prepared to direct the committee to reconsider the matter.

Mr. Bevan

I am informed that the committee have fully considered the offer but are satisfied that the alternative land is not so suitable. Having regard to the other circumstances of this case which are known to the hon. Member, I do not feel able to press them further.
