HC Deb 02 February 1971 vol 810 cc330-1W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are, for each local housing authority in the West Midlands, the building targets for 1971 and each of the next five years.

Mr. Channon

It is in the first place the responsibility of each local authority to determine its need for new building. The Department does not fix targets.
