HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 c89W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek powers to make special grants available to local authorities for the installation of central heating in post-war council houses, and for insulation at the same time; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeson

The installation of central heating and insulation in existing council houses is already accepted for subsidy purposes if it forms part of a comprehensive scheme of improvement and conversion.
