HC Deb 17 February 1970 vol 796 c77W
82. Mr. Rossi

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will estimate the total cost of Exchequer housing subsidies in 1975 and 1980 on the assumption that no change is made in the present subsidy arrangements, that interest rates remain at their present level, and that 200,000 new houses are built by local authorities in each of the next 10 years.

Mr. Freeson

A calculation on the hon. Member's hypotheses would be so unreal as to have no practical value whatsoever.
