§ 76. Mr. Sidney Shephard
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that certain local authorities have decided not to disclose the details 01 the points system by which their houses are allocated to tenants; and since this secrecy can only lead to suspicion on the part of the public, if he will circularise local authorities as to the desirability of giving full information on their letting plans.
§ Mr. Shephard
Would not the Minister agree that the public have every right to know where they stand with regard to local authority points schemes, and in those instances where a local authority refuses to disclose its points scheme, can he bring no pressure to bear on it?
§ Mr. Piratin
In view of the fact that, as the Minister himself admitted, this is the recommendation of a sub-committee which local authorities have not accepted as a directive, would he issue a circular to confirm the recommendation?
