§ Mr. Jopling
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will meet a delegation from the urban district council of Windermere concerning his refusal to sanction the loan necessary to purchase Winders Corner, Bowness-on-Windermere.
§ Mr. Crossman
My hon. Friend went into this carefully before writing to the hon. Member the other day. As he said, there is clearly no immediate need for the purchase and it would be wrong to allow the council to borrow money for it in present economic circumstances. I am afraid a deputation really could not change my view.
