HC Deb 07 November 1962 vol 666 cc64-5W
34. Mrs. Hart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will consider making special provision of housing for those at present living in areas remote from both industry and public transport, who have lost their employment following pit closures, and have not been offered employment in other mining areas.

Mr. Noble

Local authorities have power under existing legislation to provide for all classes of persons in need of houses who cannot be expected to provide for themselves.
