HC Deb 30 June 1967 vol 749 c139W
Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works how many commercial and industrial building projects in Manchester and Salford with an estimated construction cost of £200,000 and upwards he has approved in 1966 and 1967; and whether he will list these individually in the OFFICIAL REPORT showing the nature of their proposed usage.

Mr. Boyden

I have been asked to reply.

As my right hon. Friend indicated during the debate on the Report stage of the Building Control Bill on 6th July, 1966, the publication of specific details of applications granted (or refused) would involve giving information which had been provided by the applicants in confidence. In general terms, five projects within categories indicated by my hon. Friend were licensed during 1966, at a total value of nearly £1,200,000, and so far in 1967 four further such projects have been licensed, at a total value of £4,400,000. These nine projects consist of five office buildings, three warehouses and one shop.—[Vol. 731, c. 502.]
