HC Deb 26 October 1965 vol 718 cc9-10W
12. Mr. Allaun

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will permit the granting of standard improvement grants to install baths, hot water and inside lavatories in houses needing them, without insisting on a period of existence of the house of 15 years.

Mr. Mellish

My right hon. Friend has no power to do this under the present system. But he will consider the pro- posal in the course of his review of the existing legislation on improvement grants.
