HC Deb 25 March 1974 vol 871 c24W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will take steps to modify the cost-price yardstick so as to encourage a revival in local authority building.

Mr. Freeson

I am considering as a matter of urgency all possible steps to reverse the decline in local authority house-building and I am also studying the question of the housing cost yardstick.
