HC Deb 16 February 1977 vol 926 c237W
Mr. Cowans

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, in view of the commitment contained in Circular 89/75 to review the housing cost yardstick quarterly and the fact that in the last two quarters of 1976 no increase was given, if he will indicate whether a rise in the housing cost yardstick is proposed in the first quarter of 1977.

Mr. Armstrong

The quarterly reviews are based primarily on movements in tender prices, and the data for the next review, due 23rd March, are not yet available.
