HC Deb 19 October 1976 vol 917 c407W
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.
