HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 cc198-9W
Mr. Sparks

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will state in table form for each new town development corporation, the number of dwellings built and persons in occupation; the number of dwellings under construction and the estimated number of persons to be housed therein; the number of new industries completed and under construction; and the estimated labour force employed and required, together with the amounts advanced to date to each corporation.

Mr. H. Macmillan

The following table gives the information so far as it is available:

The position at 29th February, 1952, was as follows:

the future use of the Post Office and pointing out that the site is in a residential area and could be developed for housing purposes at an early date; and as there is an alternative site available near by, which becomes vacant on the demolition of temporary bungalows, at the same time as the Post Office requires the same, what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend is in consultation on this matter with his right hon. Friend the Minister of Works and he will be writing to the borough council as soon as he can.
