HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 cc65-6W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will give details of his Department's proposals for insulation of public sector dwellings in Wales.

Mr. Alec Jones

As part of the energy conservation programme, £1 million has been allocated in 1978–79 for the insulation of public sector dwellings in Wales. The Welsh Office has asked housing authorities, the Development Board for Rural Wales, Cwmbran Development Corporation and the Housing Corporation to submit bids. Allocations will be worked out of the previous six years; and what annual percentage increase these figures indicate.

Mr. Meacher

Following is the available information:

when all bids have been received. Authorities have been asked to concentrate initially on treating older, uninsulated dwellings, particularly those occupied by elderly, infirm or handicapped tenants.
