94Grants for replacement of corroded parts of " B.L.8 " houses in England and Wales

(1)A house to which this section applies is one—

(a)provided, completed and approved as mentioned in section 92(1) of this Act; and

(b)of a type known to local authorities who have powers to provide housing accommodation as " B.L.8 semidetached " (being a type of one-storeyed house constructed substantially of alloy of which the principal component is aluminium).

(2)Where, with the previous approval of the Minister, a house to which this section applies (other than one falling within subsection (3) below) is subjected by the authority who provided it to replacement of such of the parts thereof as have become, or are liable to become, corroded (whether the initiation of the works for replacement is before or after the coming into force of this section), the Minister shall pay to the authority such sum as is mentioned in subsection (4) below.

(3)In the case of a house to which this section applies which, before the coming into force of this section, has, at the instance of the Minister, been subjected as mentioned in subsection (2) above in accordance with a scheme heretofore promoted by him with the object of determining what it costs to subject a house to such replacement as is so mentioned, the Minister shall pay to the authority a sum equal to the cost incurred by them in subjecting the house to such replacement.

(4)The sum referred to in subsection (2) above is such sum (not exceeding two hundred pounds) as the Minister, having regard to the results obtained from the operation of any such scheme as is mentioned in subsection (3) above, with the approval of the Treasury determines to be equal to the reasonable average cost to local authorities of subjecting a house to which this section applies to such replacement as is mentioned in the said subsection (2).

(5)Any sums paid to local authorities under this section shall be paid out of money provided by Parliament.

(6)This section shall not apply to Scotland.
