HC Deb 05 August 1975 vol 897 cc110-1W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in view of his Department's circular of 12th December 1974 on the priority to be given to housing the elderly in England, what proposals he has to encourage local authorities to improve staff training and pay for wardens of grouped housing or sheltered housing schemes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeson

This is for the local authorities as employers to pursue, through the machinery that exists in local government to deal with these matters.
