HC Deb 07 May 1968 vol 764 c43W
42. Mr. Dickens

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will introduce legislation to enable building societies and local authorities to acquire an equity share in the property they have advanced mortgages to borrowers to purchase.

Mr. MacColl

No. I think we would need to study more deeply the effect it would have on the attractiveness of home ownership and the level of house prices.
