HC Deb 04 February 1976 vol 904 cc634-5W
29. Mr. Michael Morris

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the Government's policy towards new towns serving London in the light of the GLC's new policy to discourage people and industry from leaving London.

Mr. John Silkin

I am unaware of any new GLC policy. My policy is to retain a substantial commitment of the same order as the present programme. It needs to be kept under constant review in relation to changes in population, employment and resources.
