HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 cc297-8W
Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what consideration his Department has now given to proposals to use London's redundant dockland areas for new private and municipal housing development; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peyton

The joint study of London's dockland areas is expected to be finished by about the end of the year and should result in substantial new areas being proposed for private and municipal housing. In view of the urgent housing needs of this part of London, however, steps are being taken to release some of this land for housing development at an early date.
