HC Deb 21 March 1977 vol 928 cc375-6W
Sir George Young

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will review his allocation of £178,000 to the London borough of Ealing for mortgage lending in 1977–78, in view of his circular 123/76 which said that such allocations would not be further reduced.

Mr. Armstrong

No. The total allocation to local authorities for mortgage lending in 1977–78, announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 22nd July 1976 was unaffected by the changes in public expenditure subsequently announced in December 1976 and summarised in Circular 123/76.
