HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc406-7W
61. Mr. Higgins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government policy that programmes for housing, schools and hospitals are to be maintained means that these programmes are to be maintained in physical or money terms.

Mr. Diamond

For schools and hospitals programmes will be expressed in money terms, at constant prices. The programme for housing, while also within a money limit at constant prices, will be controlled physically by the numbers of public sector houses to be approved each year.
