HC Deb 06 May 1969 vol 783 c51W
72. Mr. Deedes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why, after 18 months of negotiations, his Department has rescinded loan sanction to Ashford Urban District Council in respect of the proposed clinic for the Stanhope estate.

Mr. MacColl

Proposals for a surgery and clinic have changed since loan sanction was promised in 1967, and the right hon. Member will now have received an explanation of the difficulties from my noble Friend the Minister of State, Department of Health and Social Security.

The Ministry will be very ready to join in any consideration of alternative arrangements.
