HC Deb 17 November 1964 vol 702 cc27-8W
44. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress has been made on the proposals for a stilt town on Erith Marshes; and, as the development of the scheme can greatly affect the lives of those living in the area, what consideration he is giving to the introduction of a system of public relations to keep the local people aware of developments.

Mr. Mellish

I understand that this scheme will form part of comprehensive plans which will include any land released at Woolwich Arsenal. I am confident that the Greater London Council, in whose area this will be, will bear in mind the second point raised by my hon. Friend as soon as any part of the scheme reaches a stage at which details can be published.
