§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what has been the policy since 1974 in relation to the assignment of leases to those taking occupancy of Government advance factories; and whether there has been any change in this policy recently.
§ Mr. Alec Jones
Each lease contains a complete bar to assignment. But in exceptional circumstances assignment may be permitted, each case being decided on its merits. There has been no recent change in policy.
