§ Mr. Spencer
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if Leicester city council was eligible to submit a scheme for consideration under the urban housing renewal unit; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
Yes. The council accepted a request from officials of my Department's urban housing renewal unit, who visited Leicester on 12 March to offer advice about some of the city's housing estates. I understand that in the light of that advice, and of continuing contact with the Department's regional office, Leicester city council hopes to submit a detailed scheme to the Department shortly.
