HC Deb 23 March 1965 vol 709 c46W
64. Mr. Heffer

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will lift the restriction now imposed on local authority direct works departments; and if he will make a statement of his future intentions in this regard.

Mr. Mellish

My right hon. Friend is reviewing the use of direct labour organisations, especially for new housing, and he is grateful to his hon. Friend for the suggestions he has sent to him in that connection.
