HC Deb 06 March 1962 vol 655 cc42-3W
Sir F. Markham

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs when the approval of the revised town map for Bletchley can be expected; and what are the main reasons why approval has been delayed for more than three years.

Mr. Rippon

My right hon. Friend hopes to approve the amendments to the Bletchley Town Map shortly. As the purpose of the amendments is to provide further land for the expansion of the town under the Town Development Act, 1952, approval could not be given until it was clear that the district council intended to continue with town development.
