HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c211W
34. Mr. Corbett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will publish the results of the appraisal of the structural safety of flats and houses built in the Bison wall frame system from 54 local authorities for which he asked on 6 October.

Mr. Gow

The Department's letter of 5 October asked authorities for details of any appraisals which have been undertaken, or which were proposed of Bison wall frame houses and flats, and of any steps taken, or proposed, to eliminate safety risks; and to confirm whether such information might be passed to other owners of Bison dwellings who sought assistance from the Department. It is for the authority concerned to decide whether it should publish the results of any appraisal which it has made.
