§ Miss Boothroyd
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make available the report by the Building Research Establishment following the examination of some Smith-built properties in the constituency of the hon. Member for West Bromwich, West.
§ Mr. John Patten
As I indicated in my reply to the hon. Lady of 12 November, at column 119, I hope to make an announcement shortly on the question of designation of Smith houses under the Housing Defects Act. I propose to make the Building Research Establishment's report on Smith houses in West Bromwich available at the time of that announcement.
