§ Mr. F. Noel-Baker
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will reconsider his decision not to consent to the borrowing of money by the Swindon Corporation for the development of a playing field at Penhill, in view of the growing need for outdoor recreational facilities for nearly 3,000 children living on this estate.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I understand that the land is already being used for recreation; what is at issue is solely the expenditure of money on equipment. I do not think that this can be held to be of great urgency in relation to other important needs, but I should be prepared to look at the matter again later.
