§ 1. Mr. Erroll
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will now authorise the borough council of Stretford, the Urmston Urban District Council and the borough council of Sale to proceed with their scheme to provide a crematorium at Sale.
§ The Minister of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
The position remains as stated in the reply given on 2nd December.
§ Mr. Erroll
Would the Minister not consider this matter afresh as there is a very real and serious shortage of crematoria in the Manchester district because so many people are preferring that method of disposal? Could he not make provision for a suitable crematorium to be built in the district indicated in the Question?
