wishing to buy homes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crossman

As I said in debate on 29th April, plans for facilitating private house purchase are in preparation and will be ready for discussion with representative interests before the end of the summer. After taking account of these discussions they will be published and appropriate legislation introduced in the next Session of Parliament.
