HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 cc282-3W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Minister of Power (1) whether he will give a general direction to the National Coal Board to ensure that the Coal Industry Housing Association is fully accountable to the National Union of Mineworkers or more accountable to local authorities;

(2) whether he will introduce legislation to ensure that houses, flats and maisonettes constructed by the Coal Industry Housing Association conform to the highest standards expected of local authority housebuilding.

Mr. Marsh

No. I understand C.I.H.A. standards of construction conform with the standards required by the local authorities. My hon. Friend may wish to write to the Chairman of the National Coal Board if he has any specific complaints.
