HC Deb 28 March 1968 vol 761 cc318-9W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will cause an investigation to be made into the operations of the First Cathays Housing Society and the Second Cathays Housing Society on the Brymynach Housing Estate, Ystrad Mynach, Glamorgan; and if he will state the amount of Government money given by way of grants and loans to these societies.

Mr. Ifor Davies

This is primarily a matter for the Housing Corporation since the scheme was carried out under powers conferred on them by Part I of the Housing Act, 1964. No Government money has been given to the Society by way of grants but a loan of £31,316 which is repayable over 40 years, has been advanced by the Housing Corporation from funds made available to the Corporation under the provisions of Section 9 of the 1964 Act.
