asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to a proposal on the part of the Brighton Corporation to lease the Brighton Aquarium for the term of 60 years for the purposes of a motor char-à-banc garage; whether he is aware that this proposal has aroused strong public opposition on the ground that the amenities of the Brighton sea-front are endangered by it; and whether, in view of this widespread feeling, he will direct the holding of a public inquiry before sanctioning the proposed lease?

Yes, Sir. A public local inquiry will be held before any decision is given.
