HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 cc32-3W
106. Mr. H. Brooke

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what arrangements are being made to enable persons on the housing lists of Metropolitan borough councils to obtain houses in the new towns around London if they so wish, in view of the fact that a number of these councils are practically at an end of available housing sites in their own boroughs.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend regrets that publication of his promised circular has had to be delayed to take account of the situation arising from the passing of the Town Development Act. He hopes to send a draft to the representatives of the local authorities concerned and to the Greater London development corporations in the very near future.
