HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 518 c19W
74. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce amending legislation to the Private Street Works Act, 1892, in order to empower local authorities to take full financial responsibility for the repair and maintenance of private streets.

Mr. Marples

No. Local authorities already have power to contribute the whole or part of the cost of works carried out under the Act.
