HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c476W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether council home building in rural areas which is specifically intended to meet needs likely to arise from the implementation of the Rent (Agriculture) Bill will be exempted from the cuts announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Mr. Armstrong

Needs arising from the legislation will be considered in the operation of the programme controls which are being introduced.
