HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 c353W
33. Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will review the cut-back in local authority capital building programmes, particularly on social services, resulting from the decisions announced in December.

Mr. John Silkin

I can only speak for the expenditure included within the locally determined sector. I regret that, in present economic circumstances, I am unable to increase borrowing approval for this sector.
