HC Deb 02 March 1971 vol 812 cc401-2W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will take steps to raise the amount in Section 37(4) of the Housing Act, 1969, from £100 to £300 per dwelling, so that local authorities can expedite all the provisions of the Act concerning improvement areas;

(2) if he will provide further grant for local authorities who have to resite industrial premises from improvement areas.

Mr. Amery

I have no proposals at present for increasing the Government contribution to environmental improvement in General Improvement Areas.
