HC Deb 08 March 1955 vol 538 cc129-30
21. Sir R. Acland

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how far the reduction in his allocation of council houses at Northfleet, from 80 in 1954 to 65 in 1955, is made in accordance with a general change of policy applicable to all areas; and what special features relating to the situation in Northfleet make such a reduction necessary.

Mr. Sandys

My information is that the council is not asking for any further allocations for the present.

Sir R. Acland

That may very easily be the case, but does that preclude the Minister from answering the Question? This is a subject in which I am interested.

Mr. Sandys

I should perhaps have added, "Therefore the other part of the Question does not arise."
