§ 71. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has yet received a petition addressed to him and signed by 174 tenants on the Mayville Estate, Islington, complaining of the dampness in the flats on this estate; and what steps he has taken in the matter.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
Yes. This is wholly a matter for the London County Council, who own these flats; but inquiries have 43W been made of them and I understand that successful remedial measures have already been taken in respect of most of the flats and that, given co-operation on the part of the tenants concerned, treatment of the remaining few should be completed at an early date.
