HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc375-6W
67. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has now completed his inquiries into the circumstances under which property intended for use as a probation hostel in Cathedral Road, Cardiff, was obtained from its previous owner; and whether he still proposes to accept this property for use as a probation hostel.

Mr. Brooke

The circumstances of the sale of this property by its former owner to its present owner are not a matter for me or in any way within my responsi- bilities. I have written to the hon. Member explaining why I am prepared to authorise the National Police Court Mission to buy the property from the present owner at a reasonable price for use as a probation hostel.
