§ Mr. Pounder
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what housing functions still remain in hands other than the Housing Executive; and when these will be transferred to the Housing Executive.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
The only housing functions now exercised by bodies other than the Northern Ireland Housing Executive are the provision and management of housing by two development commissions, and the administration of private enterprise subsidies by local authorities.
The Londonderry Development Commission's housing functions will be transferred to the Housing Executive on 1st January 1973. No date has yet been settled for the transfer of the Antrim and Ballymena Development Commission's housing functions.
Private enterprise subsidies will continue to be administered by local authorities.
