HC Deb 24 October 1961 vol 646 cc63-4W
86. Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs upon what date he received from the Manchester Corporation notice of their intention to proceed with slum clearance in the Rodney Street Clearance Area by means of a compulsory purchase order; and whether he intends to approve the Order.

Dr. Hill

The Manchester City Council notified my predecessor in August, 1959, of their intention to clear the area which was later included in the Rodney Street, Ancoats, Compulsory Purchase Order. The Order was submitted on 23rd February, 1961, and a public local inquiry held on 14th June. I expect to announce my decision shortly.
