HC Deb 25 April 1967 vol 745 cc229-30W
47. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what action he is taking to stimulate the building of houses and flats through means other than the local authorities.

Mr. Greenwood

I have made it clear that I want to see more houses built by private builders and by housing associations. I have had several discussions with the builders and building societies about measures needed to stimulate private housebuilding. The Department is in close touch with the Housing Corporation about the development of cost-rent and co-ownership housing.
