HC Deb 06 March 1962 vol 655 cc47-8W
60. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs how many Welsh local authorities at present advance money to assist house purchasers; how many local authorities in Wales have ceased to make such advances; and if he will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT the names of the local authorities in each category.

Dr. Hill

Of the 168 housing authorities in Wales, 149 have participated in the scheme for advances to assist house purchases. I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT the names of local authorities which have never operated this scheme. I have no up-to-date information about authorities now operating the scheme: authorities are not required to tell me when they stop lending.
