§ Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if, in view of the failure of most landlords to introduce a bath, hot-water supply and inside toilets into houses lacking them, he will make improvement grants, at present available on the landlord's application, equally available on the tenant's application, subject to approval by the local authority.
§ Mr. H. Brooke
It is the owner of the house who must authorise the work of improvement and must contribute part of the cost. The hon. Member's suggestion does not therefore seem to me practical.
