HC Deb 12 December 1957 vol 579 c152W
81. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in view of the reluctance of some local authorities to give grants under the Housing (Rural Workers) Act, 1926, he will authorise improvement grants for rural houses under the Agriculture Act. 1957.

Mr. Godber

No. The Agriculture Act, 1957, expressly excludes dwelling-houses from the improvements which are eligible for grant.
