HC Deb 27 November 1985 vol 87 c571W
Miss Boothroyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make available the report by the Building Research Establishment following the examination of some Smith-built properties in the constituency of the hon. Member for West Bromwich, West.

Mr. John Patten

As I indicated in my reply to the hon. Lady of 12 November, at column 119, I hope to make an announcement shortly on the question of designation of Smith houses under the Housing Defects Act. I propose to make the Building Research Establishment's report on Smith houses in West Bromwich available at the time of that announcement.
