HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 c21W
Mr. Mapp

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will appoint a team of qualified staff having a large measure of regional authority, similar to those for the new towns, to deal with the problems arising out of slum clearance in the older towns.

Sir K. Joseph

I am arranging for a group of administrative and technical officers to be stationed in Manchester to give special assistance to local authorities with big and difficult slum clearance problems.
