HC Deb 29 November 1960 vol 631 c32W
64. Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what action he is taking to preserve the distinctive fundamental principles of the first Garden City, Letchworth, from commercial take-over.

Mr. H. Brooke

I have no responsibility in relation to the purchase of shares in the Company. I have, however, certain planning powers in relation to the development of the area, which I will exercise as occasion arises.
