§ 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.
