HC Deb 06 March 1969 vol 779 cc160-1W
Mr. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many housing authorities in Wales are at the latest convenient date advancing money for house purchase; how many have discontinued this service to house purchasers; and how many have deferred their decisions whether or not to make such advances.

Mr. George Thomas

143 local authorities, including three county councils, have adopted schemes of lending for house purchase; 20 of these have not made loans in the current financial year; 73 authorities suspended lending on 31st January, 1969. Local authorities are not required to notify me when they defer decisions whether or not to make advances.
