§ Q20. Mr. John D. Grant
asked the Prime Minister what reply lie has sent to the recent request from the Islington Borough Council for an official meeting to discuss the operation of the Housing Finance Act, 1972.
§ The Prime Minister
The council wrote to me about a number of matters concerning the effect of the Counter-Inflation (Temporary Provisions) Bill on housing. I have replied that since the issues which474W it raises had already been fully considered by the Government and there is no question of changing Government policy, I am unable to agree to meet a deputation.
