HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c120W
120. Mr. Padley

asked the Minister of Works why he has permitted the Assembly Hall at Pencoed Hostels to be used for storage purposes; and whether he will let or sell the hall to the Penybont Rural District Council for use by the people of Pencoed.

Mr. Eccles

This hostel, which is not at present required for its original purpose, is being used for storage, of which there is a great shortage in South Wales. The Assembly Hall, is particularly suitable for this, and I cannot do what the hon. Member asks, for reasons which I have already explained to him.
