§ 22. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will take steps to protect the Cardiff City Council against any claims made on them if they make ex-gratia payments to mortgage-owing owner-occupiers of property scheduled for clearance.
§ Sir K. Joseph
No. As I have said in a letter just sent to the hon. Member, the Council must act on their own responsibility in this matter.
