§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the nature of the assurances he has given the metropolitan borough of Knowsley about its housing problem.
§ Mr. Kaufman
Although Knowsley Borough Council has been assured of sympathetic consideration of its proposals to deal with its particular housing problems, the only specific assurance, given in 1974, was that a loan would be available 159W for works on three lifts in the Cantril Farm flats. This assurance was taken up by Knowsley Borough Council and loan sanction was given on 18th November 1974.
