HC Deb 26 May 1976 vol 912 cc236-7W
38. Mr. Ioan Evans

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what further action is proposed to encourage the development of co-operative housing.

Mr. Freeson

Recent advice to local authorities and housing associations was set out in the Department's Circular 8/76. At my request, the Housing Corporation is setting up a Co-operative Housing Agency to provide further guidance and support.
