Welwyn Garden City seems now to be firmly established in financially better times. At Wednesday's meeting of the com- pany Sir Theodore Chambers, the chairman, announced a fur- ther increase in earnings both from the freehold property and from the subsidiary companies, of which Welwyn Stores (1929) is the most important. He believes that the policy of decen- tralising industrk will shortly be accelerated and will assist the industrial development of Welwyn Garden City.
