§ 17. Mr. Brockway
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why there has been a delay of six months in authorising the acceptance by the Slough Borough Council of a tender for roads and sewers on the Cippenham Lane Housing Estate.
§ Mr. Sandys
It is not correct to say that these tenders took six months to approve. The first tender submitted by the council was approved within five weeks; a revised tender was later substituted.
