asked the Minister of Health whether before sanctioning the scheme of the Westminster City Council to erect 814 flats, he will see if the proposal to instal coal fires in each flat for cooking and heating purposes can be reconsidered?

The proposal of this council to erect flats on the Grosvenor Estate and in Ebury Bridge Road, is not one that required any sanction on my part. I will, however, communicate my hon. Friend's suggestion to the council.

Will the right hon. Gentleman not have some regard to the health of the neighbourhood rather than have 814 open fires added in such flats?
