§ Mr. Costain
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many times the Central Housing Advisory Committee met in 1970; what reports ensued as a result of those meetings; how many sub-committees of this body are currently in existence; and what is their programme of work for 1971.
§ Mr. Amery
The Central Housing Advisory Committee met twice—on 9th February and 12th October, 1970; a third meeting was cancelled because of the General Election. The Committee itself considers housing problems in general, with particular emphasis on the social aspects of housing; reports are produced by sub-committees set up to undertake specific studies. No reports were issued in 1970 and no sub-committees are sitting at the present time. The Committee's future work will be discussed at the next meeting in April.
