HC Deb 10 March 1952 vol 497 c110W
Mr. Collick

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the urgent reasons why sanction should be given without further delay for the erection of the new factory at Cleveland Street, Birkenhead; and when he expects to complete his review of the case and make known his decision.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I am in touch with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply on this case, and I hope that a decision will be reached shortly whether or not the building can be included in our present very restricted capital investment programme.
