HC Deb 25 April 1967 vol 745 c230W
53. Mr. Urwin

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps are taken by his Department to ascertain the financial stability of firms tendering for local authority housing contracts.

Mr. Mellish

The Department has advised local authorities of the need to check the financial standing of firms invited to tender. My right hon. Friend intends to bring this matter again to the attention of all local authorities.
