HC Deb 01 July 1952 vol 503 c24W
74. Mr. Kenyon

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what special steps he proposes to take in the case of the Chorley Borough Council, where the waiting list of unsatisfied applicants for houses is increasing at a greater rate than elsewhere.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend's information does not support the statement that the borough council's waiting list is lengthening. His regional officers will continue to help the council all they can to expand the local housing programme.
