HC Deb 10 April 1962 vol 657 cc99-100W
53. Mr. Short

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will increase the grants available to local authorities and to landlords to modernise older houses, in view of the 10 per cent. increase in building costs since October, 1961.

Mr. Rippon

No. Expenditure up to a limit of £800 a dwelling already attracts grant. My right hon. Friend has no evidence to suggest that this upper limit or the amount of grant needs to be increased.
