HC Deb 03 April 1968 vol 762 c118W
Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what effects the revision announced by the Government of its housing programme will have upon the housing programme of the city of Bradford.

Mr. MacColl

No effect. Bradford is a priority authority, with a high proportion of old and poor accommodation. No restriction has been imposed on building programmes in areas of acute housing need. The recent decision to cut back Bradford's programme was taken by the local authority, and the responsibility is theirs.
