§ 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.
