HC Deb 03 February 1966 vol 723 c1289
Q11. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Prime Minister whether the public speech of the Minister of Housing and Local Government on housing policy at Hull on 25th January represents the policy of Her Majesty's Government.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

As the Prime Minister's right hon. Friend indicated a willingness to bring forward proposals to help home ownership only when the economic situation justified them, may I ask whether that is a withdrawal from the firm undertaking given to announce them this Session?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. My right hon. Friend said that we were going to bring them forward when the economic situation justified it, and I think the right hon. Gentleman will find that the economic situation will probably justify it this Session.
