HC Deb 17 February 1955 vol 537 cc88-9W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when supplies of leaflets will be available giving details of the improvement grants for rural housing.

Mr. Sandys

The qualifications for grant for the improvement or conversion of rural houses do not differ from those for urban houses. Three publications are available giving details of these grants. A free leaflet, "Improvement Grants for Old Houses" is available from local authorities; a booklet, "Grants for Improvements and Conversions" is obtainable from booksellers price 4d. In addition, a new handbook entitled "New Homes for Old," fully illustrated with plans and special references to rural areas, was published early in January by the Stationery Office, price 3s. 6d.
