HC Deb 26 March 1968 vol 761 c234W
52. Mr. Worsley

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, whether he will, in view of the economic situation, postpone indefinitely the date from which local authorities will be required to provide lifts to premises on the third floor instead of the fourth floor as at present.

Mr. MacColl

Tenants ought not to have to walk up more than two storeys to reach their front door, and four-storey walk ups will not, therefore, be permitted after 1st January next. Lifts are only one way of meeting the new standard.
