HC Deb 08 March 1965 vol 708 c24W
72. Mr. McBride

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what examination he has made of the 1,175 acres of derelict land in the Lower Swansea Valley; if he will consider making finance available for the rehabilitation of this land; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. James Griffiths

A survey of this area has been carried out, largely upon the initiative of the University College, Swansea, with the Nuffield Foundation as principal sponsor. It is hoped that the report of the project will be available before the end of the year, and I would like to see what conclusions the report puts forward before making a statement.
