§ Mr. Alton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will agree to the request he has received from the Carno Street and Goswell Street Tenants' Association in Liverpool that he visit their homes; and if he will make a statement on the delay in reaching a decision about the compulsory purchase orders on their homes.
§ Sir George Young
It would have been inappropriate for me to visit properties included in a CPO whilst a decision was still pending.
The problems which led to the delays in the processing of this order have been overcome and the Carno Street and Goswell Street Tenants' Association will be glad to know the CPO has now been confirmed.
