HC Deb 15 November 1960 vol 630 c25W
64. Mr. Swingler

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many applications for parts of the site of the former Royal Ordnance factory at Swynnerton for the purposes of industrial development he has received since the announcement of the closure of the factory; and what has been his reply to each application.

Mr. N. Macpherson

The disposal of the former R.O.F. site at Swynnerton is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War. The Board of Trade, however, have been concerned with two specific proposals from companies wishing to develop parts of this site for industrial purposes. One of these, which is a project to employ 1,000 people, has been approved; the other is the subject of further discussion with the company concerned.
