§ 31. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Minister of Health whether cases have been brought to his notice in which hardship has been caused to persons acquiring houses with the aid of loans from local authorities under the Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts through their being unaware of liability for road charges; and whether he will bring to the notice of local authorities the desirability of warning applicants for loans for the purchase of houses of their liability for road charges?
One such case has been brought to my notice by my hon. Friend but I am not aware of any other cases. I have no reason to think that local authorities normally do not satisfy themselves that applicants for 2324 loans under the Small Dwellings Acquisition Acts are aware of all the relevant facts affecting the property on which the advance is to be made and this question will no doubt bring the matter to the notice of local authorities generally.
