HC Deb 25 April 1967 vol 745 cc227-8W
38. Mr. Hilton

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will give an estimate of the percentage of the country's total housing stock upon which direct subsidies or other forms of financial aid, such as tax reliefs, are being given.

Mr. Mellish

About 27 per cent. of the total housing stock is assisted by direct Government subsidies for house-building. I cannot make any worthwhile estimate of the total percentage of the housing stock in respect of which assistance is given in this and various other ways.
