The new centre will be situated at 94, New Walk, Leicester, the present medical examination centre. Alterations to the premises are necessary, but I hope the centre will be opened by early September.

Whilst thanking my right hon. Friend for all the interest he has taken in this centre, which will be very much appreciated in Leicester, may I ask if he will be good enough to see that the opening is expedited and that this is done as speedily as possible?

Yes, Sir, all the plans are ready and everything prepared. We are awaiting the consent of the landowner to some minor alterations.
