asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that notice was served on the New Road Mission, Dagenham, on 21st April, 1961, giving only 14 days to quit, to enable road widening to take place; and whether he will give longer notice to enable new arrangements to be made for carrying on the Mission's work.

The notice to enter, served on the Mission on 21st April, 1961, was issued 18 months after it had been served with a copy of a compulsory purchase order relating to part of the land occupied by the Mission building. Temporary arrangements have now been agreed which will enable the Mission to continue its work in the major part of its building while the building of a road embankment proceeds.
