HC Deb 30 March 1977 vol 929 c144W
Mr. Richard Page

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been the number of house improvement grants approved by years since 1971; and what is the current estimate for 1977 in the Allerdale District.

Mr. Armstrong

The total of grants approved for local authorities, housing associations and private owners in England and Wales were as follows:

1971 197,500
1972 319,200
1973 361,000
1974 231,900
1975 126,900
1976 125,600

The number of dwellings improved in Allerdale in 1977 will depend on the council's expenditure priorities. Approvals in 1976 numbered 281 local authority and private dwellings.
