asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will authorise a special joint allocation of houses to the Lichfield Rural District Council and the Rugeley Urban District Council, in connection with the sinking of the new pit at Lea Hall, Rugeley; and if he will instruct his officials to assist these bodies in the submission of a joint scheme for the development of services in this area.
