§ 117. Mr. Daggar
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has considered a communication regarding the need for effecting repairs to houses owned by the 118W National Coal Board from the Abertillery Trades Council; and if he will state the nature of his reply.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
The communication referred to is dated 6th February and I only received it on 9th February. Its subject matter is the alleged delay in repairing certain property owned by the National Coal Board. As this is a matter of day to day administration, which is the responsibility of the Board, I have forwarded the letter to the Board with the request that they will deal with it direct, and have written to the Abertillery Trades Council so informing them.
