HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 c172W
Q22. Mr. John D. Grant

asked the Prime Minister what reply he has given to Islington Borough Council's request in a letter of 12th May that he should receive a deputation from the Council to discuss the withdrawal of the Housing Finance Bill.

The Prime Minister

I have told the Council that, since the proposals in the Bill have been discussed at length and in detail with the local authority associations, I am unable to meet their request.

Mr. John D. Grant

asked the Prime Minister how many requests he has received from local authorities and other organisations asking him to receive deputations to discuss the Housing Finance Bill; and how many of them he has met.

The Prime Minister

I would refer the hon. Member to my answers to his Questions of 4th May and today.—[Vol. 836, c.201.]
