§ Mr. Bradford
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what provision exists to enable the Housing Executive to undertake short-term rehabilitation in comprehensive redevelopment area 31, where his Department has decided not to replace existing dwellings; and if none exist, how the Department of the Environment intends to facilitate the elderly in George's Street, Myrtle Street, and Empress Street, whose properties are derelict.
§ Mr. Carter
Houses not included in the initial clearance phases in comprehensive development area 31 will have to remain in occupation for some time and short-term repair or rehabilitation work will be carried out on these houses to improve living conditions in this interim period until new houses are available. The need for this kind of work to be carried out on occupied houses in668W George's Street, Myrtle Street and Empress Street is to be considered.
