§ 33. Mr. Bernard Braine
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why the Basildon Development Corporation are levying charges upon householders who wish to be connected to the corporation's sewerage system greater than those which it is customary for a local authority to make.
§ Mr. Braine
Would my right hon. Friend take note of the fact that the action of the Basildon Development Corporation is strongly resented by the urban district council responsible for the area? Will he see that these excessive charges are reduced, and that the nonelected Basildon Development Corporation takes more care in future of the rights and susceptibilities of the people living in the area?
§ Mr. Macmillan
This matter is capable of adjustment, I think, with common sense and goodwill, and I hope that it will be adjusted.
