§ 25. Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action the Government are taking to encourage the improvement of older houses.
§ Mr. Finsberg
I thank my right hon. Friend for that Answer, but will he consider sending a circular to local authorities asking them to point out the benefits that can accrue from a policy of rehabilitation as opposed to a policy of complete redevelopment and destruction of existing communities?
§ Mr. Freeson
Will the right hon. Gentleman say when it is proposed to publish and circulate the extensive manual on this subject which was in preparation under the previous Administration?
