§ Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if, in the light of cases submitted to him by the hon. Member for Salford, East, he will now consider ways of speeding up the procedure for compulsory purchase of houses standing empty for more than two months, except where there are special reasons for the continued vacancy.
§ Mr. Crossman
I will certainly see that orders are dealt with as quickly as possible. But I have to give interested parties the opportunity to put their views.
