HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 cc39-40W
100. Mr. Hylton-Foster

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will circularise local authorities to ensure that housing applications by prison officers on their retirement shall not be prejudiced because their duties have prevented them from acquiring a qualification by residence for a period in the area of the authority.

Mr. Marples

The guidance already given to housing authorities should ensure that such applications are given proper consideration.
