HC Deb 09 August 1966 vol 733 c324W
Mr. E. Rowlands

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether, in view of his recent policy that local authorities should be discouraged from building houses for sale, and of the fact that there is a housing list of 5,000 in Cardiff, he will refuse loan sanction to Cardiff Corporation to build houses for sale.

Mr. Ifor Davies

No such application for loan sanction is before my right hon. Friend and I am not aware that Cardiff City Council have resolved to make one. It is my right hon. Friend's policy to give a housing authority loan sanction to build for sale only where there are special reasons.
