Mr. Philips Price
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that on the Hill Dene Housing Estate, Cinderford, Gloucestershire, the outbuildings, containing washing apparatus, are very damp through inadequate ventilation, so that metal utensils and bicycles stored there rust; and whether he will sanction a loan to enable the East Dean Rural District Council to make improvements to eliminate this damp.
§ Mr. Sandys
These outbuildings contain a wash-house, a fuel store and a general store. If each is used for the purpose for which it is designed, there should be no question of damp.
I have explained to the council that in the circumstances I cannot sanction expenditure on the proposed modifications.
