HC Deb 08 December 1964 vol 703 cc176-7W
Mr. W. T. Williams

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what inquiries or consultations he has undertaken in regard to the proposed new town at Risley; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. MacColl

My right hon. Friend is still considering the report on the soil investigation. If he concludes that there is aprima facie case for a new town at Risley, he will consult all the local authorities concerned before deciding whether to proceed with a draft designation order.
