HC Deb 05 August 1971 vol 822 cc440-1W
Mr. James Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how the proposed housing reform as outlined in Command Paper No. 4728, "Fair Deal for Housing", will affect financial subsidies for purpose-built housing provided for the disabled by local authorities.

Mr. Channon

The cost of providing this accommodation will be taken into account in assessing local authorities' entitlement to the new subsidies.
