§ 72 and 73. Mr. Willey
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) whether he will make a statement on his proposal to provide nursery factories of 1,000 to 2,000 square feet in Sunderland to be occupied by firms with limited resources;
(2) what proposals he has made for a large scale clearance of industrial slums and other slums to provide more sites for industrial development in Sunderland.228W
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
I have made no proposal to provide small nursery factories in Sunderland, but I understand that the County Borough have already arranged to do so. A proposal for slum clearance is, in the first place, a matter for the local authority and it is for them to submit their proposals for the clearance of particular areas to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government.
