HC Deb 24 November 1964 vol 702 cc151-2W
36. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what provision is being made for the recreation of residents in the new town of Peterlee, in particular for young people.

Mr. MacColl

Playing fields with a wide range of sports facilities are already in use. A sports and social centre is under construction in the northern part of the town, and a youth club is being built in the town centre. The development corporation and the local authori- ties are considering the need for further play areas, a second sports centre, a swimming bath and a commercial entertainment centre.
