HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c341W
67. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the London Borough of Brent qualifies for special Government assistance to deal with problems of slum clearance, obsolescent housing and overcrowding.

Mr. Channon

The Borough are receiving special additional help under Section 5 of the Housing Subsidies Act, 1967. If they continue to build new dwellings on a substantial scale they are likely to qualify for help under the reformed system of housing finance.
