§ Mr. William Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for the Invironment what funds his Department is making available for local authorities for the insulation of their existing housing stock.
§ Mr. Armstrong
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 28th June to the hon. Members for Wallasey (Mrs. Chalker) and Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith).—[Vol. 934, c. 198–9.] In so far as the actual cost of insulation work is concerned, no specific allocations are made to local authorities for this purpose and expenditure is met from within general authorisations.
