HC Deb 01 May 1956 vol 552 c194
29. Mr. Parkin

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what complaint he has received, under Section 171 of the Housing Act, 1936, regarding 207 Lanark Road, Paddington, which is unfit for human habitation and where the responsibilities under the Housing Acts are divided between the Paddington Borough Council and the London County Council in such a way that it has not been possible to assign the ultimate responsibility; and what steps he is taking to obtain the rehousing of the tenants who, at present, have no protection from the weather.

Mr. Sandys

I have received no such complaint. But in view of the hon. Member's Question, I have asked the two authorities concerned to let me have a report on the position.

Mr. Parkin

Is the Minister aware that this is a non-controversial Question about an apparently insoluble problem, and that his help will be greatly appreciated?
