HC Deb 10 November 1958 vol 595 c3W
55. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Supply what part is being played by representatives of his Department in the discussions about the disposal of the Royal Ordnance factory and site at Swynnerton.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

In the absence of any interest in the factory by an industrial firm, I invited the Staffordshire County Council, as the planning authority, to consider what use might be made of the site. In the consideration given by the Council to this question, my Department acts in an advisory rôle, helping in particular with information about the site.
