HC Deb 12 July 1972 vol 840 c355W
50. Mr. Joel Barnett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the effect of current legislation on hostel grants pay able under Section 15 of the Housing (Financial Provisions) Act, 1958, as amended by Section 9 of the Housing Act, 1961, to Young Men's Christian Association hostels.

Mr. Eyre

After further consideration the Government have decided not to phase out the hostel grants which are now in payment and the Housing Finance Bill is being amended accordingly.
