HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 c137W
Mr. Arnold Shaw

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the advantages from the point of view of economy, prestige, the availability of suitable clerical labour and the housing of transferred staff, he will move the Patents Office to a new or expanded town such as Swindon.

Mr. Darling

I expect the intended move of the Patent Office to Croydon, which I announced in a reply on 10th February, to meet these considerations, and in addition that of greater accessibility from central London.
