§ Mr. Arthur Pearson
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether he is aware of the concern felt by the Glamorgan County Council and the house owners liable for street improvement costs at his refusal to make an ex-gratia payment of £84 towards the private street works costs fronting the Crown's office in Duffrys Terrace, Tonyrefail; and if he will initiate steps towards making Crown buildings liable for private street work costs in these circumstances.
§ Mr. C. Pannell
My Ministry is able to make ex-gratia contributions in appropriate cases. I am prepared to make an ex-gratia contribution in this instance, the amount to be settled in due course.
