HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c107W
Mr. Coulson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what action he has taken arising out of the correspondence he has had since June 1963 with the Secretary of the Hull Ratepayers' League on the question of the parking of heavy vehicles in Alexandra Road, Hull; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Corfield

My right hon. Friend's Department has been in constant touch with the Hull County Borough Council and I understand that negotiations are well advanced for the acquisition by the council of the transport company's depot at Alexandra Road and the leasing of an alternative site to the company. I am also informed that pending completion of the contracts and preparation of the alternative site the company have asked the council to agree to the use of another site as a temporary measure to improve conditions in Alexandra Road. My right hon. Friend has asked to be kept informed.
