HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c268W
Mr. Cant

asked the Minister for the Environment when he proposes to make a statement on the recasting of housing finance on the principle of subsidising houses not families; and whether he will give an approximate date of amending legislation.

Mr. Amery

The Government's proposals are now being discussed with the local authorities and legislation will be introduced after these discussions have been completed. The principle on which our proposals are based is the reverse of that implied in the Question.
