§ 65. Mr. Awbery
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what complaints he has received from local authorities concerning the advanced corrosion of prefabricated aluminium bungalows, built less than 20 years ago, which were given a life of 60 years; and what financial assistance he proposes to give to those authorities who will suffer as a result of this deterioration and the consequent need to demolish the bungalows.
Although very few local authorities have so far complained of advanced corrosion, all authorities owning these bungalows have been made aware of the problem by my Department. The basis on which financial assistance will be given to local authorities is explained in Circular 45/61, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy
