§ 39. Mr. Ronald Chamberlain
asked the Minister of Health whether in connection with the issue of licences for houses for sale he will again call the attention of local authorities to the requirements that a deduction should be made from the amount of the authorised maximum sell- 374 ing price where street works are subsequently to be carried out.
§ Mr. Chamberlain
Since this is a most important safeguard, will my right hon. Friend look into cases which I can give him where local authorities have not done this?
§ Mr. Sparks
Is my right hon. Friend aware of the anomolous position which exists in regard to houses for sale on a cost-of-works basis upon which there is no maximum selling price, and does he not think that if it is necessary in one case to impose a maximum selling price, the same principle should apply?
