§ 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.
