HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 c65W
45. Mr. William Price

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps he is taking to encourage local authorities to plant trees in built-up areas.

Mr. Skeffington

Under the Housing Act, 1969, local housing authorities may obtain grants for tree planting in general improvement areas. A manual which is being prepared for local authorities on area improvement will include a section on tree planting. A new and enlarged version of the Department's booklet "Trees in Town and City" is also being prepared.
