HC Deb 06 July 1965 vol 715 cc191-2W
40. Mr. Deedes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what estimates his Department has made of the proportion of young children to adults in populations moving from London to expanding towns.

Mr. Mellish

It is estimated that about one-third of the population in expanding towns are under 10 years of age. This compares with a proportion of 15 per cent. in the population at large.
