asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received from the Pontypool Trades and Labour Council an application for an inspection by a representative of the Board of housing conditions in the Abersychan urban area; whether he proposes to comply with this request; and, if not, will he explain why this is not to be done?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have received from the district council a statement of the action now being taken by them, and I have sent this statement to the Trade and Labour Council for their information. The district council have almost completed the erection of 136 houses, and have provisionally agreed to acquire about thirteen acres of land for the erection of additional houses, plans for which are being prepared. In the circumstances, I do not consider it necessary to have an inspection of the district made at the present time.


asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will give a list of local authorities in Wales and Monmouthshire that have not yet adopted codes of street and building by-laws or are known to be about to do so?

I will send the hon. Member a list of the local authorities referred to.
