HC Deb 19 May 1971 vol 817 c289W
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.
