HC Deb 17 July 1964 vol 698 c291W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will give an assurance that the new proposed towns at Risley and Skelmersdale will be planned and laid out in accordance with the best modern standards, and will incorporate the experience gained at other new towns, including the avoidance of traffic in the shopping areas and where children play; and what plans he has for the preservation of trees and woods, the provision of large open spaces and landscaping in order to make the new towns as beautiful as possible.

Mr. Corfield

I can certainly give the assurance asked for. As for making the towns as beautiful as possible this will be a matter for the corporations; they will certainly have it very much in mind.
