HC Deb 06 May 1966 vol 727 cc166-7W
Mr. Barnett

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will take steps to encourage building societies and local authorities to use figures now based on the proposed option mortgage or similar scheme for the purpose of calculating the adequacy of income for the granting of a mortgage; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Crossman

I will certainly take up this point at the appropriate time with the representatives of both building societies and local authorities; but I do not think it would be profitable to do so until the present discussions on the working details of the Government's scheme are further advanced.
