HC Deb 07 February 1967 vol 740 cc1334-5
2. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps he is taking to publicise the work of the Agrément Board among local authorities.

Mr. Mellish

A circular was issued to local authorities yesterday. I am sending a copy to my hon. Friend.

Mrs. Short

I thank my hon. Friend for beating my Question by one day. Is he aware that the work of the Agrément Board is somewhat retarded because of the lack of an insurance system similar to the one which the French are using? Would he consider again whether it is possible to introduce it?

Mr. Mellish

I take my hon. Friend's advice. Incidentally, she will be glad to know that the first certificate was issued by the Board on 17th January.
