HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 cc233-4W
13. Mr. Box

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he has considered the proposals of the Welsh Planning Board for dealing with the problems of Mid-Wales; and whether he will now make a statement about the proposed new town.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

My right hon. Friend indicated what action he proposed to take about the problems of Mid-Wales in his statement to the Welsh Grand Committee on March 24th. As the hon. Member is aware, my right hon. Friend has since appointed a firm of consultants to advise him on the nature and location of a new town development and on this I have nothing to add to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave the hon. Member for Montgomery (Mr. Hooson) on 3rd June.
