§ Mr. Chris Patten
Proposals have been made for increases in the purchase price and income limits, but I wish to review the scheme as a whole rather than consider these in isolation. The Government, however, remain fully committed to the co-ownership scheme in Northern Ireland and I am pleased to say that the high level of applications is being maintained.
§ Mr. Patten
I know how much interest the hon. Gentleman has taken in this subject and how much he has lobbied us about it. I can assure him that that proposal will be considered by the review, which I hope will have reported by the end of the summer.
