§ 45. Mr. Robin F. Cook
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to obtain information on the number of local authorities which have introduced or are considering the introduction of a low-start mortgage scheme along the lines developed by NEDO; and whether he will circulate local authorities on this matter.
§ Mr. Freeson
Local authorities in England and Wales are being asked to supply information on the number of low-start mortgages granted by them. A departmental circular letter about low-start mortgages, and the NEDO scheme in particular, was sent to local authorities in England and Wales in September 1972.
