HC Deb 20 February 1978 vol 944 c535W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he now intends to introduce a variable cost yardstick for housing purposes that will reflect the difference in building cost levels between various district council areas in Wales.

Mr. John Morris

No. I am not aware of any significant variation in tendering levels between different areas of Wales which cannot be accommodated within local authorities' freedom to accept tenders within 10 per cent. of yardstick.
