HC Deb 20 December 1972 vol 848 cc412-3W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in view of the two-year delay and the amount of public funds involved, he will seek a report from the Portsmouth City Council on the difficulties encountered in the Portsdown Hill housing project with special reference to the lessons to be learned for public housing schemes throughout England and Wales; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Eyre

No. The Portsdown Hill housing project is a matter for Portsmouth City Council, and it is for the council to approach me if necessary about any increased costs under the contract.
