§ Mr. Michael Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the housing finance policy review has not yet reported; on what date it began its work; what date he has fixed for its completion; what is the reason for the delay; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeson
The review started work in February 1975. I hope it will be com-106W pleted by the end of the year. It has not been possible to bring the review to a conclusion before now because it was essential to allow sufficient time for full consideration of the complex issues involved.
