HC Deb 06 March 1970 vol 797 cc207-8W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will state the number of houses in Hull flooded during the September 1969 high tide; and whether he will consider additional loan sanction for extra new houses to rehouse the families in the flooded areas.

Mr. Freeson

About 500. Subject to the usual conditions, my right hon. Friend will be glad to approve any proposals the local authority may make to replace these houses as soon as possible.
