HC Deb 13 January 1975 vol 884 cc34-5W
Mr. Michael Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will quantify in numerical terms the number of additional new private houses which were started in 1974 solely as a result of measures taken by his Department since March 1974.

Mr. Kaufman

The factors affecting private house building starts are highly complex and it would be impracticable to quantitfy in precise numerical terms the impact of the range of measures the Government have taken since March 1974.
