§ 43. Mr. Costain
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is preparing proposals to exempt house extensions and alterations from the application of building regulations; and, if so, what effect they will have on the safety of houses.
§ Mr. Armstrong
No, but the Building Research Establishment has in hand a preliminary investigation of the feasibility of exempting some house extensions and alterations from normal building control procedures, though not from compliance with the regulations, without detriment to safety and health.
