§ 105. Mr. J. McKay
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that many miners in the Parliamentary division of Wallsend, and else- 113W where in Northumberland, are living in houses owned by the National Coal Board which are old, unfitted for proper repairs, without water or baths and, in many cases, damp; and if he will consider recognising such areas in the Wallsend constituency and in other parts of Northumberland, by granting the application of the Coal Industry's Housing Association for erecting miners houses in these districts.
§ Mr. Marples
My right hon. Friend will be prepared to consider favourably any proposal of a local authority to enter into arrangements with the Coal Industry Housing Association under Section 94 of the Housing Act, 1936.
