HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c236W
Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he will give a general direction to the Post Office Corporation to exempt retired pensioners rehoused by local authorities from slum clearance areas from the 75p postal redirection fee.

Mr. Chataway

No, but I understand from my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment that local authorities have, under Section 63(1) of the Housing Act, 1957, discretionary powers to reimburse such costs in appropriate cases.
