§ Sir G. Elliston
asked the Minister of Health if he has considered the Order submitted for his approval by the Wembley Borough Council for the compulsory purchase of six playing fields, covering a total area of 48 acres, for the purposes of Part V of the Housing Act, 1936; and whether such purchases, reducing the limited opportunities for games and recreation in Greater London, will be sanctioned in areas where other sites are available.
§ Mr. Willink
I understand that the local authority has made such an order but it has not yet been submitted to me. When it is submitted I shall have to consider it together with any objections that may be made to it and I shall at that time 'bear in mind the points mentioned in the last part of my hon. and 'gallant Friend's Question.
