HC Deb 29 October 1956 vol 558 c111W
110. Mr. Parkin

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce a special subsidy for small dwellings, whether provided by local authorities or by non-profit-making associations, which can be offered to old-age pensioners at rents low enough to encourage them to leave dwellings larger than they need.

Mr. Sandys

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Tynemouth (Dame Irene Ward) on 23rd October.
