HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c246W
79. Mr. Bowden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware of the large number of pre-war council houses in Leicester without hot-water systems; and if he will give improvement grants to the local authority with installations where the tenants are prepared to meet part cost.

Mr. Sandys

I will of course consider any application which the Council may submit to me, though I should not normally be prepared to sanction improvement grants for houses on which subsidies are already being paid.
