§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will undertake a review of council houses in Wales which are in an unacceptable state of maintenance in order to ensure that each authority has the necessary funds available to maintain its existing housing stock in a reasonable state of repair.
§ Mr. Alec Jones
No. The management of council houses is statutorily the responsibility of the housing authority. The repair and maintenance of houses is fin-78W anced from the authority's housing revenue account.
