HC Deb 01 December 1953 vol 521 c119W
72. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Works how many football clubs, which had stands and similar facilities for covered accommodation destroyed during the war by enemy action, have applied for building permits and been refused.

Sir D. Eccles

I regret that it has been necessary to withhold licences to reinstate stands destroyed in the war in respect of five of the principal Association and Rugby football clubs.
