HC Deb 30 April 1975 vol 891 cc161-2W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he intends to reallocate any existing housing finance to assist directly private landlords.

Mr. Freeson

As my right hon. Friend announced last November—[Vol. 881, c.913–14.]1—a comprehensive and searching review of the present system of housing finance is being undertaken. This will include a consideration of the arrangements in the private rented sector. I cannot say now what conclusions are likely to be reached.
