§ Mr. Beith
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in his discussions with local authorities on the reduction of expenditure, he will make allowance for the fact that expenditure on welfare schemes in public housing such as the provision of wardens, has ceased to attract housing subsidy since the last financial year with a view to allowing such expenditure to continue.
§ Mr. Freeson
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 30th July 1976.—[Vol. 916, c. 473].
