HC Deb 25 July 1962 vol 663 c143W
41. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has now been made with the disposal of the site of the former Royal Ordnance factory, Swynnerton; and if it is now proposed to dispose of the whole of the site for industrial development.

Mr. Profumo

Some land has already been disposed of, but as the hon. Gentleman realises, there are many uses to which this site could be put after disposal and the position is complicated by possible requirements for new towns in the Midlands. We are still considering the proper solution. My right hon. Friends and I recognise the importance of getting an early solution and I will inform the hon. Member of our decisions as soon as possible.
