§ Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Health why the Bedwas and Machan Urban District Council have rejected plans for the building of 160 workmen's houses on freehold land purchased by the Bedwas Navigation Colliery adjacent to their pits, notwithstanding that the said plans are precisely the same as accepted and passed for building in other colliery districts?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I am not aware of the circumstances in which approval has been withheld by the local authority in the case to which the hon. Member refers, but I am making inquiries, and will send 2475W the hon. Member a further reply as soon as possible.
