§ 57. Mr. John Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps are being taken to bring the older Service housing estates up to modern-day standards.
§ Mr. Channon
We are currently planning a substantial increase in the programme of improvements to the older married quarters estates to bring them up to present day standards. We spent £2.4 million on improvements in 1970–71 and expect to spend £5.8 million in the current financial year.
