HC Deb 22 April 1969 vol 782 c55W
48. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will give assistance to the London Borough of Brent to reinstate as park land the former prefab site adjoining Roundwood Park, Willesden.

Mr. MacColl

Where authorities provided temporary housing on open spaces they were required to seek Ministerial authority under the Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Act, 1945, for the site to be used for this purpose and the Minister undertook to assist with the eventual cost of reinstatement. At Roundwood Park there is no record of authority being sought or given under the Act. The authority has written to the Department asking for a meeting to discuss this and my right hon. Friend will consider the matter in the light of its representations.
