No specific grant is payable for home safety work as such, but normal advice and help is given by health visitors and other domiciliary services, and that automatically ranks for grant. Apart from that, my right hon. Friend has in the past approved for grant special expenditure on such items as special propaganda and provision of fire guards. I think that if the local authority concerned applied to my right hon. Friend he would look sympathetically at any proposition put forward.
