HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c450W
128. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what action he is taking, in view of the housing shortage, to promote the increase in the number of houses to be built in Sunderland.

Mr. MacColl:

As a priority authority, Sunderland may build as many houses as they need, and the generous subsidies provided by the Housing Subsidies Act 1967 should encourage them to do so.
