HC Deb 23 October 1973 vol 861 c459W
Mr. Lipton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the fact that the proposed occupants consider the flats too small, if he will reconsider his decision to buy a block of former police flats in Penge to rehouse prison officers at Brixton.

Mr. Carlisle

These flats meet the space standards agreed with the staff association concerned, and in view of the pressing need for quarters for prison officers in the London area my center hon. Friend is satisfied that their purchase should proceed.
