HC Deb 22 July 1958 vol 592 c19W
37. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will introduce legislation to amend the Housing Act, 1957, to enable him to require local housing authorities to furnish him with periodical returns of the number of people on their housing lists, specifying, in particular, the length of time each person's name has been on these lists, and distinguishing between white and coloured applicants.

Mr. H. Brooke

I do not think that to collect this information would be useful.
