HC Deb 28 February 1967 vol 742 cc62-3W
54. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government on what date the Parliamentary Secretary for Housing and Local Government visited the London Borough of Newham to discuss their housing problems; and what action he took consequent upon his undertaking to investigate the possibility of including Newham within the scheme for retrospective subsidies under the Housing Subsidies Bill.

Mr. Mellish

I visited Newham on 27th October, 1966. The representations then made to me about retrospective subsidies were very carefully considered before the final list of qualifying authorities was announced.
