asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what decision he has reached on the scheme put forward by the Crosby Borough Council for the development of the St. Michael's Road Estate, Crosby, which has been before his officials since 8th May, 1951.
As my hon. and gallant Friend has been informed, the scheme is acceptable in principle. I have under consideration the conditions which should be attached to the sale of council houses and will make an announcement on the subject at an early date. In the meantime, the Crosby Borough Council can proceed with the building of the houses under their scheme, if they wish to do so, and a decision on the details of the scheme will be notified to them as soon as possible.
