Since the Answer given to my right hon. Friend in November, 1964, my right hon. Friend the Minister has approved plans for playing fields, part of the sports and social centre in the northern part of the town, and for the extension of the existing golf course. He is considering proposals for an entertainments centre, to include bowling alley and cinema; for a town centre building to include halls for social activities and for the contribution by the development corporation towards the cost of providing a swimming bath.
I agree that the town very much needs these amenities, but my right hon. Friend is encouraged now that progress is being made by co-operation between the Corporation and the district council. He will certainly do all he can to facilitate it.
