§ 55. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government on what date in 1966 he published the list of English towns which would receive assistance because of the steps they had taken to meet exceptional slum clearance and overcrowding; and whether he will publish in HANSARD a list of these towns together with the revised list of these affected by the Housing Subsidies Bill.
§ Mr. Mellish
A first list of local authorities qualifying for the backdating of subsidies was published on 28th February, 1966 [Vol. 725, c.199–200] and a final list on 20th December, 1966, in replies to Parliamentary Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for Salford, East (Mr. Frank Allaun). All authorities included in the first list were also in the final list.—[Vol. 738, c. 262–3.]
