Demolition Of Tommy Duck Public House

EDM number 1735 in 1992-93, proposed by Robert Litherland on 31/03/1993.

That this House notes with great concern that Greenalls Group plc, acting like philistines, have demolished Manchester's famous public house Tommy Duck's, thus depriving the city of a part of its heritage and achieving what Adolf Hitler's Luftwaffe failed to do during the wartime blitz on Manchester; condemns the off-handed decision to demolish the pub during the night and without adequate consultation with Manchester City Council's Planning Department; and requests the Secretary of State for the Environment to take all necessary steps to rectify the ambiguity in the planning powers of local authorities to enable them to bring to task vandals like the Greenall Group plc.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
