HC Deb 12 April 1960 vol 621 c115W
65. Mr. Chapman

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will indicate the particular alternatives he had in mind when rejecting Birmingham's application to develop land for housing at Wythall; and to what extent he will finance a new town.

Mr. H. Brooke

In the letter conveying my decision I have offered to arrange for discussions with the authorities concerned on ways and means of accelerating provisions for the movement of industry and people out of Birmingham. I think it will be best for the various possibilities to emerge in the course of these discussions.
