§ 27. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what consideration he has given to the 46W proposal by the Civic Trust, a copy of which has been sent to him, that slum clearance be increased from 60,000 to 180,000 houses a year; and if he will increase the present programme.
§ Mr. Corfield
My right hon. Friend is studying this report. So far as slum clearance is concerned, he is encouraging local authorities with the worst problems to plan forward programmes over the next five years for building as many houses as they can manage.
