§ 38. Mr. Ellis Smith
To ask the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs, what application he has received under Section 6 of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1958, to meet the need to provide houses for the increased manpower which will be required during the next five years in the North Staffordshire Coal Board area generally; what consultations he has had in this connection with the local authorities; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
I have received no applications and thus have entered into no consultations. I am always ready to consider applications for an increased housing programme and for the approval of subsidy under Section 6 of the 1958 Act, if authorities wish to put a case forward.
