The fact remains that they were supervised by councils and by their employees who were...

Opposition Day: Housing and Planning Policies (22 Jun 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: Far from it, dear boy. A contractor is drawn to an area by the price of land and communications. From London, it takes one hour 38 minutes to Doncaster, two and a half hours to Sheffield, and how many years to Langbaurgh I do not know. So communications is one of the things which determine where people go. We have beautiful green fields around Sheffield. It is a lovely place to live, but it...

Schedule 2: Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield (21 Jun 1988)

Mr Irvine Patnick: During the course of this Adjourment debate I hope to outline to those hon.
