Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many applications have been made for certificates of disrepair under the Housing Repairs and Rents Act, 1954, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne; and how many such certificates have been issued.

Mr. Sandys

I am informed that up to 14th February, 1955,Newcastle-upon-Tyne City Council had received 196 applications by tenants for certificates of disrepair. Of these 182 had been granted and none refused. Five had been withdrawn; the rest were still under con- sideration. Up to the same date, there had been four applications by landlords for the revocation of certificates of disrepair, upon the completion of the required repairs. Two of these had been granted and two were under consideration.
