HC Deb 19 January 1978 vol 942 cc367-8W
Mrs. Knight

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will ensure that the public inquiry into the Northern Ireland Housing Executive alleged misuse of public funds and other irregularities is not set up to investigate these matters in certain sections of the Province only, but is convened so as to be

only at disproportionate cost. There are 220 motor cars per 1,000 population, or 327 motor cars per 1,000 electorate, in Northern Ireland. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport informs me that comparable figures for Great Britain are 258 and 352 respectively. These figures relate to 1976.
