HC Deb 07 February 1967 vol 740 c259W
56. Mr. Gardner

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will seek powers to make improvement grants available for the replacement of old and faulty electrical wiring systems in dwelling-houses.

Mr. Mellish

Grants are available for replacement when this is part of an approved scheme of improvement to the wiring system as part of the modernisation of the house; the grant system is being reviewed as part of the current examination of the problems of our older houses.
