HC Deb 28 November 1972 vol 847 c99W
Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if the re-roofing of dwellings where the existing slates or tiles have perished is an item eligible for a discretionary improvement grant, provided the allowable cost is not less than the statutory minimum.

Mr. Eyre

I understand that the right hon. Gentleman has already had correspondence with the Secretary of State for Wales and has been advised that repairs and replacements do not qualify for grant if carried out on their own.
