HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c84W
81. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Labour what consideration has been given, or is contemplated, by his officials to the effect that the proposals for a new town for 25,000 people on Erith Marshes will have on the employment prospects for the local people now residing in the district.

Mr. Hare

Although I am aware that development of this area is under consideration, I understand that no final plans have been put forward. My officers are maintaining a careful watch on the employment situation in Erith and will examine closely any formal proposals made.
